Hugh Thackeray Turner, 1853-1937

Hugh Thackeray Turner had first been articled to Scott but in November 1878 he departed from John to go to George Gilbert junior’s office as chief assistant. In February 1883 he left there to become the first salaried Secretary of SPAB where, of course, he was in constant touch with Morris. He was a member of the Spring Gardens Sketching Club from 1870.
