About This Item

Canongate, 1994. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 6.25" x 9.5. h/b 259 pages, condition is Very Good. Lorn Macintyre's illuminating account of the life and work of Sir David Russell (1872-1955) shows the famous Fife-born papermaker to be a cultured humanist and a pioneer of New Age thinking. As a young partner in his father's firm of Tullis Russell, Sir David's love of books and great ideas made him seek broader connections. He developed an early interest in alternative medicine, and in 1912 became president of the Leven Lodge of the Theosophical Society. Shortly after, Sir David met Wellesley Tudor Pole. The complementary qualities in the deep friendship between these two men led them to embark on a great 'quest' of archaeological discovery in the eastern Mediterranean. Sir David encouraged Tudor Pole's visionary belief that there were important relics to be found, and they eventually did uncover the site of the house of Justinian. Spirituality was a living concept to Sir David Russell, and this biography tells of his role as instigator of the lona Retreat. He was also a philanthropic and innovative businessman who took a keen personal interest in his employees and their well-being. When Sir David died in 1956, the Tullis Russell mills in Markinch employed a thousand people in a community-based plant with almost a village atmosphere. The Russell Trust has continued to finance excavations and scholarships throughout Scotland and the world.
