This chapter lays out in graphical form the results of word searches for ‘philanthropy’ and ‘philanthropist’ in the Burney Collection of Seventeenth and Eighteenth Century Newspapers and the British Library Newspapers Archive on Gale NewsVault and the collections on British Periodicals available on ProQuest. I have also carried out in-depth work on The Times and the Observer and Manchester Guardian and on the Daily Mail from its start in 1896. The results show the growth of use of the words in the second half of the eighteenth century, a slight dip in the early nineteenth century, followed by exponential growth in the 1830s and 1840s to reach a plateau of high usage through to the end of the century. There is then sharp decline through to the 1940s, followed by increasingly rapid growth from the 1980s.
