Leonard Woolf on the Bloomsbury Group

John Maynard Keynes was a member of the Bloomsbury Group, which existed from c. 1904 until around the 1940s.

Leonard Woolf remembered the “Old Bloomsbury” as composed of the following people:
Vanessa and Clive Bell
Virginia and Leonard Woolf
Adrian and Karin Stephen
Lytton Strachey
Maynard Keynes
Duncan Grant
E. M. Forster
Saxon Sydney-Turner
Roger Fry
Desmond and Molly MacCarthy
Julian, Quentin and Angelica Bell
David Garnett.
There is a useful diagram below by Bernhard Wenzl from Wikipedia on the composition of Bloomsbury.

Finally, there is an interesting audio recording below of Leonard Woolf on the Bloomsbury Group.
