There is a campaign to raise funds to put up a memorial/statue in Sheffield
in recognition of Carpenter and his work and influence:
There’s a good concise biography of Carpenter on the above site. Perhaps some of them may join us and some of us may join them and maybe we can have a whip round for the fund on the ride.
If you’ve got time have a look at Sheila Rowbotham’s “Edward Carpenter: a life of liberty and love” London, Verso 2008 and David Price’s “Sheffield Troublemakers: Rebels and Radicals in Sheffield History” Chichester, Phillimore 2008 - both in the Central Library.
