Dard Hunter: Arts-and-Crafts Designer, Paper Historian, and Private-Press Printer Extraordinaire  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Lecture by Cathy Baker
In 1904 when a young man, Dard Hunter arrived on Elbert Hubbard's Roycroft campus in East Aurora, New York, to learn how to make "mission" furniture. He immediately impressed everyone with his craftsmanship in many mediums, and over the next 6 years under his guidance Roycroft products featured his avant-garde designs. Dissatisfied with what he regarded as this derivative style, however, he sought an area of research in which he could make an original and valued contribution; he found it in the history of papermaking. From 1911 until his death in 1966, Hunter researched and traveled around the world several times to gather information and materials. To disseminate this information to a wider audience, Hunter handprinted books, most under his imprint Mountain House Press, located in Chillicothe, Ohio. These extraordinary books, as well as his classic reference, Papermaking: The History and Technique of an Ancient Craft and his papermaking collection (now at the Renewal Bioproducts Institute at Georgia Tech) form the extraordinary legacy that Dard Hunter left to us.
