About the William Morris Society

Founded in London in 1955, the William Morris Society aims to make the life and work of Morris and his associates better known.

Its programs—which involve branches in the United Kingdom, Canada, and the United States—include lectures, conferences, tours, museum visits, and social gatherings.

A Magazine, Useful and Beautiful is published biannually. Members also receive the biannual Journal of William Morris Studies.

The Society also publishes books and pamphlets dealing with Morris.
