Collection Summary

Abstract

This collection consists of papers of Unitarian clergyman, transcendentalist, author, and social reformer James Freeman Clarke, including correspondence, sermons and lectures, journals, personal notebooks, financial papers, etc., as well as papers of his wife Anna (Huidekoper) Clarke and other members of the Clarke and Huidekoper families.

Biographical Sketch

James Freeman Clarke (1810-1888) was a Unitarian clergyman, transcendentalist, author, and social reformer. The son of Samuel (1779-1830) and Rebecca Parker (Hull) Clarke (1790-1865), step-grandson of James Freeman (1759-1835), and grandson of William Hull (1753-1825), Clarke graduated from Harvard College in 1829 and Harvard Divinity School in 1833. From 1833 to 1840, he worked as a minister in Louisville, Kentucky, where he edited the Western Messenger, a transcendental journal that contained the first published writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson.

In 1839, Clarke married Anna Huidekoper (1814-1897), the daughter of Harm Jan Huidekoper (1776-1854) and sister of Frederic (1817-1892) and Elizabeth Huidekoper (1819-1908) of Meadville, Pennsylvania. (Harm Jan and Frederic Huidekoper were co-founders of the Meadville Theological School.) The Clarkes' children were: Herman Huidekoper Clarke (1840-1849); Lilian Freeman Clarke (1842-1921), a social reformer and translator; Eliot Channing Clarke (1845-1921), a civil engineer; and Cora Huidekoper Clarke (1851-1916), a naturalist and author.

In 1841, James Freeman Clarke founded the Church of the Disciples in Boston. Except for a leave of absence between 1850-1854, he was the pastor of that church until his death in 1888. In a radical departure from traditional New England congregational churches, all seats in the church were free, and the laity were full participants in its operation. When Clarke was forced to take sick leave and the church property was sold, the congregation continued to meet until he could return.

Clarke was a non-resident professor at the Harvard Divinity School from 1867 to 1871. He had been a member of the Transcendental Club and was one of the early biographers of his close friend Margaret Fuller (1810-1850). He also owned the Brook Farm property after the collapse of the utopian community there. Clarke was a strong advocate of political and social reform throughout his life. Among the causes he supported were the abolition of slavery, women's suffrage, civil service reform, temperance, and educational reform. He was a member of both the Massachusetts Board of Education and the Board of Overseers of Harvard University. Though a theological conservative, he championed religious liberty. He served as secretary of the American Unitarian Association and was intimately involved in the operations of his own church, as well as local and national Unitarian church government, for 55 years.
