Hubbard (1856-1915), was a prolific writer and a tireless entrepreneur who is most famous today as the founder and guiding lig h t of the Roycroft printing and craft shops. These were based on the Hammersmith arts and crafts complex of William Morris, but with many American and Hubbard-ian twists and turns. Until his death on t he S.S. Lusitania, he was one of the most dynamic and famous men in the world. On his first trip abroad his letters home were mostly travelogue, and they became the basis for his first magazine eff ort . He sold Putnam's the idea of putting out a brief 'Little Journey' biographical sketch on a monthly basis. Later, when he established his own print shop, he took over the whole project. He also p rint ed and published two national opinion magazines, the 'Fra' and the 'Philistine'. He was also responsible for the famed 'A Message to Garcia'. "The graveyards are full of people the World could no t do without" -- Elbert Hubbard, 'Epigrams' (1911). Bookseller Inventory # 970723aa
