Elbert Hubbard founded the Roycroft Press in 1895. During it's 43 years of family operation it employed many artisans who went on to become famous in their own right. W. W. Denslow of Wizard of Oz fame, Dard Hunter master artisan and paper maker, Karl Kipp, Frederick Kranz, John Grabau, Sterling Lord, Walter Jennings, Louis Herman Kinder, Alexis Fournier and Lorenz Schwartz are among the Great employed by Hubbard.
