Have since been looking up on her, and I observe
that Lord Churchill was profoundly anti-everything
Dora Marsden stood for (as might have been
expected). In any case, I am hastily rectifying
this serious gap in my knowledge and understanding
I chose Dora for one of my short lists of heroes
in part because she's obscure, not just to yourself.
My friend and scholar Trevor Blake turned me
on to her.
Trevor is a sleuth for obscure yet powerful
thinkers, perhaps unrecognized in their own
time, or perhaps strange in all times, yet shining
specimens of some extreme or other. Not
surprisingly, he has tracked Bucky Fuller (how
he met me).
Yes, Dora and Churchill were contemporaries,
she being a powerhouse writer in favor of
giving women real / equal political privileges
in the UK. She once crashed a males-only
meeting wherein Churchill was a chief speaker
and hauled away by police.
