The William Morris Society was founded in 1955 with the purpose of making the life, work and ideas of Morris (1834 - 1896) and his associates better known. In The History of The William Morris Society, Martin Crick, author of The History of the Social-Democratic Federation, describes the Society's first fifty years, telling of both successes and controversies and bringing to life the many dedicated and sometimes larger-than-life personalities involved.
