East Aurora Rotary Meeting
December 5, 2017
 
Alan Nowicki, Programming Director, Roycroft Campus: Alan is an art teacher who has taught at multiple levels. Alan also worked for PBS and one of his jobs was producing a documentary on Elbert Hubbard, which took 3 years of research. Alan lead our group through some of the history of the Roycroft and Elbert Hubbard. Hubbard was working for his brother in law at the Larkin company when he decided to take a trip to England where he met William Morris whom is considered the father of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Morris was also a printer, and creator of the Kelmscott Press. Elbert was inspired by the press and quality of handmade craftsmanship and brought those traditions home to the states. Morris' influence on Hubbard resulted in Hubbard writing A Message to Garcia, which is still in the top 10 best selling books of all time. The Roycroft Campus is a non-profit organization featuring: The Print Shop, Power House and Copper Shop. There are many events throughout the year, check it out at roycroftcampuscorp.com
