Herbert Minton Cundall was the Secretary of the Hogarth Club in London.


Cundall was the Secretary of the Hogarth Club from 1881 to 1893. JW gave a special recital of his Ten O'Clock lecture to the members of the Club on Monday 21 February 1885, the day after his opening performance at Prince's Hall. JW also lent them a collection of etchings (#02139). JW wrote to Cundall on 4 January 1889 that he had been insulted by William Stott of Oldham. On 12 January 1889 Cundall informed JW that the Committee had called on Stott to apologise to JW for his conduct within the Club (#02147). The Birmingham Daily Gazette (19 January 1889) reported that the quarrel was over 'the model who sat for that rueful Venus rising from the sea'. Stott refused to apologize and resigned (#02152). Cundall was the author of Bygone Richmond, published by J. Lane in 1925.
