Helen Castle Mead

Listed in: Letters · Ohio and Regional · American Studies · Biography




Castle’s correspondence with family members and with George Herbert Mead— one of America’s most influential philosophers and his best friend at Oberlin College—reveals many of the intellectual, economic, and cultural forces that shaped American thought.

“Alfred L. Castle deserves great credit for making possible the republication of these letters and for writing an elegant introduction in which he clearly outlines their historical significance.”

Gary A. Cook, author of George Herbert Mead: The Making of a Social Pragmatist
