Nesta Helen Webster


English controversial author who revived conspiracy theories about the Illuminati. She argued that the secret society's members were occultists, plotting communist world domination, using the idea of a Jewish cabal, the Masons and Jesuits as a smokescreen. According to her, their international subversion included the French Revolution, 1848 Revolution, the First World War, and the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917.

In 1920, Webster was one of the contributing authors who wrote "The Jewish Peril," a series of articles in the London Morning Post centred on the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. These articles were subsequently compiled and published in the same year in book form under the title of "The Cause of World Unrest." Webster claimed that the authenticity of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion was an "open question."

Webster became involved in several right-wing groups including the British Fascists, the Anti-Socialist Union, The Link, and the British Union of Fascists. She was also the leading writer of "The Patriot", an anti-Semitic paper, Webster dismissed much of the persecution of the Jews by Nazi Germany as exaggeration and propaganda.

She died on 16 May 1960.

Sy Scholfield quotes time from her in "Spacious Days: An Autobiography" by Nesta Helen Webster (Hutchinson, 1950), p. ii: "It would be difficult to imagine a more peaceful scene than that on which my eyes first opened when, soon after eight o'clock one summer evening (the 14th of August) I entered the serene and untroubled world of late Victorian England." Date, year and place from birth notice in The Times (London, England), 18 Aug. 1875, p. 1: "On the 14th inst., at Trent Park, the wife of R. C. L. Bevan, Esq., of a daughter."
