John Howard (1726?-1790), was a prison reformer and social campaigner, here holding a 'plan for a Lazaretto', a quarantine station for maritime travellers. Howard experienced imprisonment himself in France in 1756. It was not until 1773 when he became High Sheriff of Bedfordshire that he initiated an important campaign to transform prison conditions. He spent a lot of his time visiting prisons in Britain and Europe, leading him to write his influential book "The State of Prisons", first published in 1777. A highly reserved man, Howard shunned public recognition throughout his life.
