Michael George Schofield (June 24, 1919 –March 27, 2014) was a pioneer of social research into homosexuality in the 1950s and 1960s, and a campaigner for the Homosexual Law Reform Society at a time before the Sexual Offences Act 1967 partially decriminalised homosexual activity in the UK. He played a prominent role in the law reform lobbies of the 1960s and 1970s. He is the author of many books including “Sociological Aspects of Homosexuality” (1965) and “The Sexual Behaviour of Young People” (1965). Schofield retired in 1985 from public life and lived with his partner (whom he met in 1952), Anthony Skyrme, in Belsize Park until his death in 2014.
