City of Our Dreams - J.B. Morrell Publication

Posted on 10 March 2020

The Borthwick Institute is pleased to announce the publication of Borthwick Texts and Studies number 44, City of our Dreams: J. B. Morrell and the shaping of modern York

J. B. Morrell is one of the key figures in the development of the York we know today - from the development of the York Art Gallery; the conservation of many of York's historic buildings; the successful campaign for a University and the development of the Castle Museum. Beyond this was another Morrell - the politician, the mayor, and the businessman, possessed with wit, foresight and a deep care for the city of his birth. This new, meticulously researched work is the first detailed study of J. B. Morrell, charting his life, influences and legacy.
City of our Dreams: J. B. Morrell and the shaping of modern York, 2019, by Dr Katherine Webb can be purchased through the University's online store along with other Borthwick Publications.
