Description

The Philistine was a spearhead of the Arts & Crafts movement in America. This magazine published the works of its editor Elbert Hubbard as well as Stephen Crane, Benjamin DeCasseres and others. W. W. Denslow, illustrator for The Wizard of Oz, was a regular contributor and designed the sea-horse mascot that graced the front covers. Publisher Hubbard also founded the Roycroft movement, and founded a working community of craftsman in East Aurora, NY that lives to this day. The journal was published from 1895 until Hubbard's death in 1915 aboard the RMS Lusitania. Bruce A. White's The Philistine: A Periodical of Protest is a unique chronicle of this American journal and its fascinating publisher. Previously published in limited quantities by an academic press, this new and expanded popular edition brings a fascinating history to a wider audience. Bruce A. White yanked out his New England roots in 1978 and moved to Maryland to start teaching at Gallaudet University. He has retired to coastal Delaware, where he volunteers for service organizations, rides bikes and kayaks, and enjoys simple pleasures with his beloved Barbara.
