TDIH: The Bloomsbury Group

On this day in 1924, author Virginia Woolf bought a house in the Bloomsbury district of London. Why should you care? This purchase would place Woolf and her husband Leonard in the center of a group of intellectuals that would become known as the Bloomsbury Group.

The group included a range of well-knowns including John Maynard Keynes, E.M. Forster, and the Woolfs.

For those of you unfamiliar with the Bloomsbury Group, this video (a portion of an entire documentary) will introduce you.
