A political firebrand, a radical reformist and a leading society figure - the life and times of John George Lambton, first Earl of Durham, were truly captivating. Durham University is now the new home to the archives of Lord Durham, as he was also known, whose energetic support for political reform earned him the nickname ‘Radical Jack'.
