Great Expectations ========================== His greatest contributions were in drawing attention to the horrifying and disgusting conditions of poverty in which most of London lived. He also served on several boards that addressed the issues of poverty; he was one of the founders and primary donors of a house for prostitutes who wanted to "get out of the life." He was able to place many girls in service outside London, where the need and temptation to return to the life was highest.
