Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, gave an entertaining and insightful lecture about Samuel Johnson at the Harcourt Lecture and Museum Annual Dinner on Wednesday 11 November 2009. The Mayor’s famously dishevelled locks also found their historical antecedent in our collections in the form of an Edwardian coachman’s wig that bore an uncanny resemblance to Johnson’s own coiffure.
