Samuel MORLEY

Edwin Hodder, The Life of Samuel Morley (1887)

When Samuel Morley died in 1886, ninety-seven religious and philanthropic groups were represented at the funeral. Samuel Morley had been associated with all of them. This biography, commissioned after his death by the family, reveals an influential but totally charming man. A copy of the book has been given to the Historical Society by Lionel Kevis and Mr. H. Withington and is available from the Society through the Archivist.
