The Making of Walter Morrison: Family, Wealth, Education, Travel, Radicalism... (Livestream)

Exhibition

Description

Explore the life and times of Walter Morrison in this lecture series featuring academics, archivists and architects.


In his fifties, Walter Morrison wrote to a nephew: 'Life which is all beer and skittles ... is deadly dull work to the Northerner, especially to a Morrison, all of us more or less morbid. I found this out before I was your age [22] and got into business, and I suppose I should be wretched now if I had no hard work and anxiety.' This talk will explore the influences that shaped the private and public life of Walter Morrison, with a particular focus on his family, his upbringing at Fonthill House, Basildon Park and London, his education and his inherited wealth.


The speaker, Dr Caroline Dakers, is Professor Emerita of Cultural History, University of the Arts London


The lecture will be held as a hybrid eve.nt: both in-person and online via zoom. In-person and online tickets need to be booked separately. You are on the online event.


We are aware that there were some sound issues with the opening lecture in the Morrison series. We will take steps to remedy this before the autumn series.
