From the feedback I got on this series, there is nothing even slightly resembling it in print. Gary Nash gave me an A+ for the paper. It is, however, a project to read it all. The second section takes you by the hand to understand how Anne H. got into trouble with the establishment, so skip if you are already familiar with the chronology. Has footnotes, and I am proud of it. If you get through it, you might understand better why I wrote the blog “Evil Puritans” linked here: http://clarespark.com/2013/08/05/evil-puritans/. Anne Hutchinson was the perfect autodidact, strong woman, and prefiguration of free market economics. The literature about her is wildly misogynistic, including Hawthorne’s sketch of “The Woman” that one scholar has linked to The Scarlet Letter, with the “A” standing for Anne Hutchinson.
