Frederick Burrows 1878-1972
After two years with Dresser, Burrows had the experience and practical knowledge to set out on his own as a freelance designer. He produced for a short time, primarily in Manchester and sometimes in collaboration with Rex Silver, before becoming disillusioned with the commercialisation of his work. He resolved to become an art teacher and enrolled at the Royal College of Art, and while still a young man was appointed Principal of the Portsmouth School of Art. He ended his career as an Art Inspector for the Ministry of Education.
