Thomas Henry Keell (24 September 1866 – 26 June 1938) was an English compositor who edited the anarchist periodical Freedom.[1][2] In 1907 he attended the International Anarchist Congress of Amsterdam, where he was hailed by Emma Goldman as "one of our most devoted workers on the London Freedom".[3] Keell also contributed to Voice of Labour for many years and was an outspoken opponent of the First World War.[4] He was arrested along with companion Lilian Wolfe during a 1916 raid of Freedom offices; the pair were imprisoned and later lived together in Whiteway Colony in Gloucestershire from the 1920s until Keell's death in 1938.[4]
