The life of Elbert Hubbard (1856-1915) is a story of love, art, passion and controversy set against the backdrop of the Arts and Crafts Movement at the turn of the 20th century.
To this “back-to-basics” artistic and cultural movement, Hubbard contributed his bold, ingenious talent and creative force. As the flamboyant founder of the Roycroft artisan community in East Aurora, New York, Hubbard was an influential national figure ― an author, publisher, lecturer and entrepreneur ― who died as dramatically as he lived.
