Abstract:

The Papers focus on three sisters: Elizabeth Palmer Peabody (1804-1894), Transcendentalist, teacher, author, abolitionist and educational reformer; Mary Tyler Peabody Mann (1806-1887), married to educator Horace Mann; and Sophia Amelia Peabody Hawthorne (1809-1871), artist and writer, married to author Nathaniel Hawthorne. Elizabeth Peabody started the first formally organized kindergarten in the U.S., in Boston, 1860, following Friedrich Froebel's kindergarten movement. The Peabodys were well-acquainted with New England intellectuals, artists, and social reformers of the day. The collection consists primarily of letters from the Peabody sisters to their friend Maria Chase, of Salem, Mass., describing their intellectual pursuits and social activities in Massachusetts, circa l820-53. Also included are letters written by Maria's sister, Rebecca Chase Kinsman, to her family while en route to China with her merchant husband, Nathaniel Kinsman, and while living in Macao (1842-46).
