Biography: Unitarian minister, abolitionist, and member of the Trancendentalist Club, James Freeman Clarke (1810-1888) spread transcendentalist teachings to the West, moving to Kentucky upon graduation from the Harvard Divinity School and founding the Western Messenger, the earliest transcendentalist periodical. After returning to Boston, he helped establish the Church of Disciples in 1841. Clarke and his peers, including Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, and Ephraim Peabody, expanded the scope and role of transcendental thought and Unitarianism in the nineteenth century.
