Linton- Life in the Collections

S.H. Morse & J.B. Marvin ed.:

10) The Radical. Vol. V.

Linton’s address The Religion of Organization had been published shortly afterwards in the April issue of The Radical. It is perhaps not by chance that the same volume also includes an account of the life and work of Linton’s teacher W.J. Fox. It was written by Moncure Daniel Conway, an apostate Unitarian clergyman, who took on a similar, but reciprocal role to Linton as a transmitter between American and British radical culture. At the time, the latter had emigrated to America, the former changed to London to promote abolitionism, Walt Whitman poetry and Transcendentalist literature.
