教育家爱默斯布朗森爱尔考特 (Amos Bronson Alcott) ,也是路易莎爱尔考特 (Louisa May Alcott) 之父出生于17991129

投票权运动并不是爱默斯爱尔考特所相信的唯一事业。他也支持废除奴隶制度。在1830年时,他前往波士顿参加有关废除奴隶制度的一系列演讲课程。在麻州,他遇到了「唯一教派」的牧师萨姆尔梅 (Samuel May) ,以及他的妹妹艾碧该梅 (Abigal May) ,她是老师,也是社会工作者。


The suffrage movement was not the only cause in which Amos Alcott believed. He also supported the abolition of slavery. In 1830, he traveled to Boston to attend a series of lectures on abolition. There he met Samuel May, a Unitarian minister in Massachusetts, and his sister Abigail May, a teacher and social worker.

Amos Bronson Alcott married Abigail May on May 23, 1830. Over the next few years, the couple moved several times as Amos Alcott attempted and later abandoned experimental schools after they proved financially unsuccessful. Alcott's theory on education was that "early education is the enduring power" in forming the imagination and moral life of a human being.
