Sir Charles Raymond Beazley (3 April 1868 – 1 February 1955) was a British historian.[1] He was Professor of History at the University of Birmingham from 1909-1933. [2]

Born in Blackheath, he was the son of Rev. Joseph and Louisa Beazley.[3][4] He was educated at St Paul's School, King's College London and Balliol College, Oxford. His academic career was as a Fellow of Merton College, Oxford, until his chair at Birmingham.

Associated with a pro-German tendency within the British political and intellectual establishment in the inter-war years[5], Beazley was a regular contributor to the Anglo-German Review, established in 1936.[6] He subsequently sat on the National Council of the Link, a pro-German organisation.[7]
