Donisthorpe Online!

Liberty Fund's Online Library of Liberty now has two of the great British Individualist Wordsworth Donisthorpe's books on their website: Individualism: A System of Politics (1889) and Law in a Free State (1895). He wrote a number of other works, but the essays included here are some of his best. They also have an essay of his,"The Limits of Liberty" (1891) from A Plea For Liberty: An Argument Against Socialism and Socialistic Legislation which is a fine expression of his ideas.
Just a thought.

I once looked into this a bit. He lived in Michigan (I think in Pontiac) and was still listed on the U.S. Census in 1920.

Does anyone know when Austin Willard Wright was born, let alone died?

The one remaining history is the death date of Austin W. Wright.

January 30, 1914. I've seen a copy of his death certificate.

Does anyone know when Donisthorpe died? Many years ago, the Library of Congress showed a question mark for his death date.
