Did you know that Charles Darwin fits into the "Wedgwood Circle"? Did you know that he was sent to university to study theology before he became interested in geology and a professor friend of his recommended a trip to the South Atlantic against his father's wishes? Did you know that Darwin's father's family was a generational set of medical doctors? Did you know that the composer Ralph Vaughan Williams's mother was Margaret Wedgwood, and that her great uncle was therefore Charles Darwin? These and other amazing tidbits of factual information await you in this text of one of England's most prolific families. No royalty needed here. They made their money the old-fashioned way - they EARNED it! And all of this by working side by side with the craftsmen who made their dish wares and pottery. Is there a lesson to be learned here for today's modern CEO? I think so, and for the rest of us all, too. It's called CRAFTSMANSHIP. An outdated and outmoded word, but one which is ever more important today, and a word which describes what this family was about. A good read for the historian and reader who finds an interest in this remarkable family.
