Ford Stauderman has long admired England and the English. He
first experienced that country while serving in the US Cavalry in World
War II, and spent seven years there recently, as owner of a Tudor house
built in 1360. He has been writing professionally for 50 years, first as a
writer of dramatic programs for the radio and TV networks in New York, and
then as a creative director for major advertising agencies, winning over
50 Clios and other creative awards. In a national poll of the advertising
industry, Bruce was voted one of the Top 100 Creative People in the United
States. He was also chosen to represent the United States on the
International Jury of the Cannes Advertising Film Festival.
During his last stint in England, his many American guests plied him with
numerous questions their guidebooks didn’t answer. Not all easy
questions either, so, as a conscientious host, Bruce found himself forced
into some rather intensive research. The result is a first-of-its-kind
book for travelers and Anglophiles alike, with over 1,300 unusual,
surprising and often amusing facts, details, photos and graphics in 44
chapters, each on a different subject about England and its people.
