Born in Brattleboro, VT., Noyes (1811-1886) graduated from Dartmouth in 1830 and studied law at Andover and Yale. Reacting against Calvinism, he combined prefectionist and adventist beliefs in a personal theology. He developed a society known as the Bible Communists of Putney, VT. Amongst other doctrines, he professed free love and powers of healing. Arrested on a charge of adultury, he broke jail and fled to western NY where he and his followers founded Oneida in 1848. He lived in Oneida for 30 years before fleeing to Canada ahead of the law. Mott: "The Oneida Circular was the chief organ of the perfectionist communties founded by J. H. Noyes. In it Noyes expounded his doctrines of spiritualism, communism, and free love: though uneven in its editing, it was often well written and interestng"[Vol II, p. 207]. The Circular was succeeded by the American Socialist (1876-79) also published by the Oneida group.
