Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915) of East Aurora, NY, was the founder of The Roycroft Shops, as well as a popular and controversial author and editor of three magazines. This book poignantly tells the story of the love, heartbreak, eventual marriage, and tragic deaths on the Lusitania of Alice and Elbert Hubbard. Drawing on the Hubbards' personal correspondence, Charles F. Hamilton shows how Elbert Hubbard was strangely drawn to Alice Moore and driven by her inspiration to great heights of achievement, risking everything -- his wealth, career, reputation, and loved ones -- for her companionship. Includes index.

Charles F. Hamilton's interest in Elbert Hubbard and the Roycroft movement began over 40 years ago with the purchase of a second-hand Roycroft book. He later met Elbert Hubbard II and interviewed many of the original Roycrofters -- and subsequently became a leading authority on Roycroft. He has written four books on the Hubbards and the Roycrofters, and dozens of related articles for national publications.Review:
This ground-breaking work draws on the private correspondence of Elbert and Alice Hubbard. Charles F. Hamilton is the first (and only) author who has had access to these letters, and by frequent inclusion of the Hubbards' own words, weaves a fascinating true story which reads like a novel. -- Publisher Comments
