Havelock Ellis (1859-1939) was a British physician, social reformer, and writer.

"Henry Havelock Ellis, British psychologist and essayist, was born in Croyden, Surrey in 1859. As a young boy, he traveled to Australia and South America. Ellis entered medical school, obtaining a basic license to practice midwifery in 1880. About the same time, he began writing essays on social, philosophical and literary topics and soon after joined the Fabian Society, a socialist salon in England. An advocate of sexual liberation and women's rights, he wrote the six-volume Studies in the Psychology of Sex, published from 1897-1928. Ellis died in 1939. His autobiography, My Life, was published posthumously the following year."
