Emily Hobhouse was born in 1860 at the rectory in St Ive. She was one of five surviving children of Reginald and Caroline Hobhouse. Reginald was rector of St Ive for over 50 years.

An International Exhibition dedicated to the Life and Work of Emily Hobhouse

Emily Hobhouse is celebrated for her relief work in the concentration camps of the South African War.  This exhibition uncovers Emily Hobhouse’s less well-known contribution to international peace, humanitarianism, and South African politics in the post-war period, including her work in Germany following the First World War. Through her remarkable writings – most vividly her book War Without Glamour  – it  tells the story of her lifelong commitment to revealing the devastating impact of war on civilians. Newly-donated papers at the Bodleian Library in Oxford are showcased alongside letters, paintings and artefacts from international collections.
