Samuel Longfellow, youngest brother of Henry wadsworth Longfellow, is one of the least known protagonists of the 19th century. This is somewhat surprising considering that he knew a great number of the individuals who were having a great effect on poetry, literature, history, social movements and religion during the middle part of the century. He did not just know them, but through speaking and writing, he was a respected contributor to their ideas and accomplishments. He was not in the spotlight, but was generally a step ahead of the direction the light was moving. This book aims at showing Samuel Longfellow’s life and activities among his friends and other persons he had contact with. Of course his family was involved in his life, but a large part of his social and theological contributions over the years were carried out together with his friends, organizations with which he participated and the places he worked.
