A Hoosier in the Holy Land: Rosamond Dale Owen's Quest for Utopia

A Hoosier in the Holy Land: Rosamond Dale Owen's Quest for Utopia - (Archives)

Feb 21, 2017
(6:30 PM - 7:30 PM)

Although Robert Owen's celebrated utopian experiment at New Harmony was fleeting, his vision of a New Moral World was kept alive by the family he left behind. Like her grandfather years earlier, Rosamond Dale Owen abandoned the comfort of her home in search of her own utopia on another continent, which she attempted to establish in Palestine in the late 19th-century.

Born in New Harmony in 1846, Rosamond's life was also shaped by some of the other reform movements of her era. Pat Sides, Willard Library Archivist, will share her research on this little-known Owen.
