Oneida community : books, pamphlets, and serials, 1834-1972/ Jack T. Ericson, editor. -- Glen Rock, N.J. : Microfilming Corporation of America, 1973. -- [4] microfilm reels ; 35 mm.

The community was founded by John Humphrey Noyes in 1847 in western New York State. Based on a "Perfectionist" philosophy that was an offshoot of Wesleyan Methodism, it is perhaps best known for its advocacy of "free love" (sexual love and birth control outside of marriage), and "complex marriage," including communal living and child care. The Oneida Community was successful at several manufacturing ventures which its members commonly owned. The membership numbered about 300 at its height, and enjoyed support from the local towns and farms. The community pioneered not only new marital and family relations but also, in its manufactures, progressive labor policies (worker night schools, piece-work, and the eight-hour day).
