Collection Historical Note

Thomas Wentworth Higginson, 1823-1911, was an abolitionist, author, Civil War colonel of the 1st South Carolina Volunteers, and Unitarian minister from Cambridge, Massachusetts. He graduated from Harvard College in 1841, and went on to study theology at Harvard Divinity School. Higginson became involved in the Abolitionist movement in the 1840’s. He was a member of the Secret Six that supported John Brown and a member of the Free Soil Party. Higginson was a supporter of the women’s suffrage movement and organized the American Women Suffrage Organization in 1869. He served as editor and contributor for The Woman’s Journal. Higginson was also associated with the Atlantic Monthly, having contributed many essays, articles, and poems. It was here where Higginson began corresponding with Emily Dickinson and other women writers. After Dickinson’s death, he helped Mabel Loomis Todd edit her poems for eventual publication.
