Anthony Wonderley Program and Book Signing for His New Book,
Oneida Utopia: A Community Searching for Human Happiness and
Prosperity on July 21 at 1 pm at the Madison County Historical
Society
OCMH PRESS RELEASE

The Madison County Historical Society is proud to present a program and book signing with Anthony Wonderley for his new book,
Oneida Utopia : A Community Searching for Human Happiness and Prosperity of on Saturday, July 21 at 1pm at the historical society
located at 435 Main Street in Oneida.  

Oneida Utopia is a fresh and holistic treatment of a long-standing social experiment born of revival fervor and communitarian
enthusiasm. The Oneida Community of upstate New York was dedicated to living as one family and to the sharing of all property,
work, and love. Anthony Wonderley is a sensitive guide to the things and settings of Oneida life from its basis in John H. Noyes’s
complicated theology, through experiments in free love and gender equality, to the moment when the commune transformed itself
into an industrial enterprise based on the production of silverware. Rather than drawing a sharp boundary between spiritual
concerns and worldly matters, Wonderley argues that commune and company together comprise a century-long narrative of
economic success, innovative thinking, and abiding concern for the welfare of others.

Oneida Utopia seamlessly combines the evidence of social life and intellectual endeavor with the testimony of built environment and
material culture. Wonderley shares with readers his intimate knowledge of evidence from the Oneida Community: maps and
photographs, quilts and furniture, domestic objects and industrial products, and the biggest artifact of all, their communal home.
Wonderley also takes a novel approach to the thought of the commune’s founder, examining individually and in context Noyes’s
reactions to interests and passions of the day, including revivalism, millennialism, utopianism, and spiritualism.
Anthony Wonderley is the former Curator of Collections and Interpretation at the Oneida Community Mansion House. He is the
author of Oneida Iroquois Folklore, Myth, and History and At the Font of the Marvelous and editor of The Days of My Youth and John
Humphrey Noyes on Sexual Relations in the Oneida Community.

After Anthony Wonderley’s program there will be an opportunity to purchase copies of Oneida Utopia and to request the author’s
signature. There is no fee to attend the program. Refreshments will be served. For more information please contact the Madison
County Historical Society at 315-363-4136, or history@mchs1900.org. The Madison County Historical Society is a nonprofit
organization that operates both a museum and the Mary King Research Library located at 435 Main Street in Oneida.  The society
continues to preserve, collect, promote, and exhibit the history of Madison County and its fifteen towns and one city through the
development of programs that enhance Madison County’s heritage. The historical society’s headquarters are housed in an 1849
Gothic Revival Villa that is listed on the State and National Registry of Historic Places.
