Millicent, 4th Duchess of Sutherland (1867-1955), was sometimes nicknamed 'Meddlesome Millie'. She was a well known social reformer involved in several local causes, the most notable being her campaign to eliminate the use of poisonous lead in the glazing process in the pottery industry. During the First World War she established a Red Cross Hospital, The Millicent Sutherland Ambulance, in Belgium and France. G. T. Bagguley is today best known for his 'Sutherland tooling process' (by which colour tooling was executed on vellum), which he mainly used on books bound for the Duchess of Sutherland. Item #096437
