The Udell Family

Illustration by Josh Latta.

The Radical Book Shop was founded in 1914 by disillusioned social worker Howard “Harry” Lewis Udell (1870–1918) and his blind wife, Lillian Evangeline (Hiller) Udell (1867–1935), a respected lecturer on literature. Their daughters, Geraldine (1903–1998) and Phyllis (1900–1973), would assist and became integral to the running of the shop.
