Overview

This microfilm collection of The Brook Farm Papers contains a unique and complete record of one of America's most noted 19th-century intellectual communes.

Among the original shareholders and members were Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, and Charles A. Dana. The collection includes the Constitutions and Minutes, Articles of Incorporation, a listing of members, as well as all business papers of the community. There are also approximately 150 letters written by Marianne Dwight while she was a member, which describe daily life at Brook Farm.
