Collection Creator Biography:

Goldring, Douglas, 1887-1960

Douglas Goldring was an English writer and journalist. Having inherited a legacy, he left Oxford without a degree, and moved to London to write. In 1908 he was a sub-editor under Ford Madox Ford for English Review, and later edited his own literary magazine, The Tramp, publishing early works by Wyndham Lewis. Goldring was also noted as a radical journalist and prolific contributor to left-wing publications. He wrote twenty-five books, including poetry, novels, literary criticism, travel, and two autobiographies.
