Random information on the term “Peruke”:
William Berry “Willy” Clarkson (1861 – 12 October 1934) was a British theatrical costume designer and wigmaker.
Clarkson’s father had been making wigs since 1833 and Willy Clarkson took over his father’s business in 1878. In an 1898 court case Clarkson was fined for the offence of employing women in a factory on a Sunday.
The business became prominent and vary successful. A 1900 article in the theatrical newspaper The Era stated that “Not to know Willy Clarkson and his doings is to be out of the theatrical world, for Willy Clarkson, with the bright and easy (though sometimes anxious) manner is ever hovering “before and behind.” Scarcely any big production in London is undertaken without the aid of the owner of the Wellington-street wiggeries.”
Clarkson’s company supplied costumes and wigs used in the amateur dramatic productions of Queen Victoria’s family and circle. In the 1920’s, he was the owner of the Duchess Theatre in Catherin Street. In 1936, Adrian Stephen recalled that Clarkson had helped disguise the members of Horace de Vere Cole’s Dreadnought hoax in 1910. Among the hoaxers was a young Virginia Woolf, disguised as a member of an Abyssinian royal delegation.
