"The death of Mrs. Webb on 30 April 1943 deprived the Academy of a distinguished member, whose contributions to the worlds of thought and affairs remain of permanent importance. ... At once student and reformer, historian, economist and pamphleteer, an experienced observer of politics and the joint author of books which opened a new chapter in English sociology, she drove, without flagging or or losing sight of her goal, several horses abreast, and her achievements are too diverse to be easily summarized." R. H. Tawney, p.285.
