This article was wrong in claiming the Arnold Toynbee for whom Toynbee Hall was named is the 20th century world historian of the same name (Arnold J.)! I've made the change based on my knowledge of this fact and will produce documentation when I have a chance to dig out the specific sources and page citations! This error was apparently ported from the Wikipedia article, which still has the historian Toynbee dying five years (1884) before he was born (1889)! (Check it out!)

The confusion may be over an earlier Arnold Toynbee who was an economic historian at Oxford (and father of Arnold J?). I'm still uncertain about this, since Toynbee Hall had a close attachment to Cambridge University and most of the first "settlers" were Cambridge students.
