Sarah Margaret Fuller

TL;DR -- We run into New England influences a lot. This post looks at Margaret Fuller who was prominent on the literary scene of the early 19th century. She died as a young mother but go recognition later with the advent of the feministic movement. 


We are always looking for the New England influence and have examples of finds in different places of the U.S. We don't have a category, but there are enough of these examples to identify them in terms of types of meaning over the long years since Cape Ann and Salem. While reviewing philosophical writers in the 19th century in regard to our interest in technology and its impacts on all of us, Sarah Margaret Fuller's (Wikipedia, Wikitree) name came up. She was born in 1810 and is a member of generation seven. 

Among other things, she was a cohort of Ralph Waldo Emerson (WikiTree), a critic for Horace Greeley's New York Tribune, and, in that role, criticized the work of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (National Park Service). 

Her birthplace is still standing in Cambridgeport of Middlesex County of MA. Margaret was home schooled by her father who was a lawyer. 

One of her brothers was a great-grandfather of Buckminster Fuller (Wikipedia, WikiTree) who was well-known in the 20th century. By Buckminster's time, here were many New England families involved with the Fullers. One of these was Thomas Gardner of Roxbury who we have looked at in a prior post.
