BEVERVOORDE, Adriaan van


BEVERVOORDE, Adriaan van
(1819–1851)
   Journalist. Dur ing 1844–1845, van Bevervoorde was editor of the Journal de la Haye, which was regarded as an unofficial paper of the govern ment. After his involuntary resignation, he became a fierce opponent of government policies. Van Bevervoorde joined the small circle of radical democrats and edited several critical weeklies (Asmodee, Courrier Batave, De Burger). Although he did not live long enough to develop his views more systematically, his ideas can be seen as presocialist.
