Dr. Arthur Townley , a Michigan dentist and pottery lover, is the man who rescued Rookwood Pottery by using his life savings to purchase all the assets of the historic Cincinnati company prior to its sale to overseas interests. Rookwood expert Riley Humler and George Hibben from today’s Rookwood join Stuart Holman to share the story of Dr. Townley and his determination to see the company returned to Cincinnati and to producing its classic pottery.
