HIRD, James Dennis


HIRD, James Dennis
(1850-?1920)
   UK writer involved in 19th-century temperance movements and Christian socialism. His Toddle Island; Being the Diary of Lord Bottsford (1894), an Erewhonian UTOPIA set on an ISLAND in the Pacific, rather effectively satirizes much of UK intellectual life.
