July 25 – Progressive Organization – Dr. Lou Yock

While the Transcendentalists expressed the importance of individualism, they were remarkable organizers. Prisons, care for the mentally ill, care for the poor, and education, were some of the areas of social reform in which they excelled. Their concepts and attitudes form the basis of the progressive approach to society, and continue to provide a blueprint for reform.
