Special | 56m 49s  | Video has closed captioning.

This is a story of love, art, passion and controversy set against the backdrop of the Arts and Crafts Movement at the turn of the 20th century. To this "back-to-basics" artistic and cultural movement, Hubbard contributed his bold, ingenious talent and creative force. As the flamboyant founder of the Roycroft artisan community, Hubbard was an influential figure who died as dramatically as he lived.
