New Albany, IN
Marie Duclos Fretageot was one of the founders of the Owenite New Harmony experiment. She is also the ancestor of Dr. John R. Hale and it is her letters that provide a uniquely personal view of this extraordinary attempt to create a Utopian community on the banks of the Wabash River.
Dr. John R. Hale, the Director of Liberal Studies at the University of Louisville, is an archaeologist who has conducted fieldwork at sites from the Aegean Sea to the Ohio River Valley and the highland lakes of Guatemala. His writings on archaeology and history include Lords of the Sea on the links between naval power and democracy in ancient Athens.
