THE SPIRITUAL MAGAZINE, Oneida Reserve, (New York), Aug. 11, 1849 "The Oneida Community was in many ways the most radical social & sexual experiment in American history, founded in central New York by John Humphrey Noyes & a small band of Christian perfectionists in March, 1848. This community, which had evolved during the 1840's from an earlier group association in Putney, Vermont, dissolved as a communitarian venture in January, 1881, at which time the carefully restricted membership approached 300 men, women, & children. It then legally transformed itself into a capitalist enterprise known as the Oneida Community, Ltd., & in 1935 the company changed its name to Oneida, Ltd. It still functions as one of the world's leading silverware manufacturers." (credit Spencer C. Olin, Jr.)
