Stephen Pearl Andrews (1812–1886)

Andrews, Stephen Pearl. An American miscellaneous writer; born at Templeton, MA, March 22, 1812; died at New York, May 21, 1886. He was a prominent abolitionist, practiced law in the South, and settled in New York in 1847. He paid much attention to phonographic reporting, and also to the development of a universal philosophy which he called “Integralism,” and of a universal language, “Alwato.” Besides numerous works relating to these subjects, he wrote: ‘Comparison of the Common Law with the Roman, French, or Spanish Civil Law on Entails, etc.’; ‘Love, Marriage, and Divorce’; ‘French, with or without a Master’; ‘The Labor Dollar’ (1881); ‘Transactions of the Colloquium’ (a society founded by himself and his friends for philosophical discussion [1882–83]).
