The Late A. Bronson Alcott
Tuesday, March 6, 1888
In addition to abstaining from animal products, Alcott was also eco-friendly. He advocated for an Earth-loving lifestyle which was against using manure to enhance soil. Alcott sought to take the pressure off of animals who were forced to perform labor for the benefit of the farmer, and spare them from being slaughtered for food. The vegetable diet consisted of "aspiring vegetables" which only grew upward instead of down like a potato. This photograph of Alcott was printed in The Daily Graphic in New York on March 6, 1888, two days after Bronson Alcott's death.
