Biographical Text

Despite holding the position of secretary for the Walworth Clinic, one of the most reputable Birth Control Clinics belonging to the Society for Provision of Birth Control Clinics(SPBCC), Evelyn Fuller was a lesser known Birth Control activist. She was trained as a teacher, and later appointed superintendent of the Walworth Women's Welfare Center, at the time owned by the SPBCC, previously owned by the Malthusian League.Evelyn Fuller was secretary for the Walworth Clinic from 1923 to 1936, and it is known to have expanded under her leadership. In fact, the Walworth Women's Center was seen as the "model" for other SPBCC clinics. In 1926, Evelyn Fuller was Honorary Secretary of the SPBCC, with Evelyn Graham Murray as Chairman. Five years later, Evelyn Fuller presented a paper on the SPBCC to an international symposium on contraception which was well received mainly due to the fact that it emerged from her experience at the Walworth Clinic. In 1936, she suffered a breakdown, was dismissed from work, and eventually committed suicide.
Evelyn Fuller's work includes a 1926 illustrated booklet for volunteers, as well as one regarding the management of birth control centers, which was published in 1931. She wanted for clinics to be easily accessible to patients, and to create an environment for them in which they had privacy and were surrounded by friendliness.
