William Morris: Socialist and Shopkeeper

Lecture at the Hillside Club, 2286 Cedar St.
Tuesday, 15 August 2006, 8 pm

British design historian Alan Crawford is the author of Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1995) and C.R. Ashbee: Architect, Designer, and Romantic Socialist (1986). He is currently working on a history of the Arts and Crafts movement in England for Yale University Press, and on Court Barn, a new museum and study center in Chipping Campden devoted to the Arts and Crafts movement and its legacy in the north Cotswolds.

In his lecture at the Hillside Club, Mr. Crawford will focus on the contradictions in the career of William Morris, who was both capitalist and communist, socialist and shopkeeper.
