Raymond Lister (1919–2001) was an English blacksmith/ironworker, author, artist and the leading authority on Samuel Palmer. He was born and spent most of his life in Cambridge. During his career he had made the artistic ironwork for many buildings, including King's College Chapel, Cambridge, and chancel gates for a London church, founded his own publishing company, the Golden Head Press, became a member of Wolfson College, Cambridge, and was governor of the Federation of British Artists from 1972 to 1980. He came to widest public attention, outside Palmer circles, when he was called as an expert witness in the 1976 trial of Tom Keating the noted forger.[1][2] He was also a noted collector of Oxford & Cambridge College Stamps and Private telegraph Company Stamps, which he wrote books on the subject.
