Out of obscurity, Bernard Shaw was able to look to Fabianism as a representation of unconventionality and brilliance. Shaw was often recognized as a budding socialist, and was said to have fostered characteristics of vegetarianism, malnutrition, Jaegerism, and Atheism. Shaw drew inspiration from Karl Marx, Stanley Jevons, Philip Wicksteed, and Henry George, and entered the Fabian Society through an apprenticeship. In looking into Shaw's particular brand of Fabian activism, the fundamental ideas concerned are the kinds and degrees of activism that Shaw actually exercised. Through Stanley Wintraub's version of Shaw's published diaries, Anthony M. Gibb's Shaw chronology, and Dan H. Laurence'S bibliography of works by Shaw, we are able to identify specific evidence for Shaw's Fabian activities.
