Elbert Hubbard was the charismatic mastermind of the Roycrofters, an East Aurora, NY handicraft community of metalsmiths, leathersmiths, furniture makers, printers, typesetters and bookbinders. 










The community was founded in 1895 and soon became the center of the American Arts and Crafts movement. At its peak from 1910 to 1915, Hubbard and his 500 skilled Roycrofters  enjoyed  world-wide success.  In 1915 Hubbard and his wife died aboard the Lusitania when it was torpedoed by a German submarine.  The Roycroft community remained a mecca for artists and writers under the leadership of Hubbard’s son, until it closed in1938.  Today, the Roycroft campus is listed on the National Registery of Historic Landmarks.  The quality craftsmanship and unique artistry of Roycroft products made them the most successful artistic enterprise of the early 20th century Arts and Crafts era. Today, those items are highly sought after by collectors.
