Elbert Hubbard was a true American original: proponent and disseminator of the Arts and Crafts Movement in the U.S., a printer, publisher, artist, salesman, socialist, lecturer, and self-proclaimed philosopher. Hubbard started the Roycrofters in 1894, an artisan community in East Aurora, New York. His contoversial (and often paradoxical) opinions garnered much criticism and scandal throughout his life. PBS released a documentary in 2009 entitled Elbert Hubbard: An American Original.
