The Friend of Man

About this collection

Friend of Man is one of the most significant and little studied newspapers documenting early anti-slavery and other reform movements. The periodical is of special significance because with the exception of religion, scholars know little about the resources of social movements in rural areas such as Central New York, where Friend of Man was published.

Cornell is truly fortunate to have a close to complete set of Friend of Man, 283 issues, published from 1836 - 1842.
