The Franklin Merrell-Wolff Fellowship seeks to preserve and support the legacy of Franklin Fowler Wolff. In detail, we are a publicly-supported, nonprofit corporation whose mission is to educate the public about the twentieth-century American philosopher, mathematician and sage whose penname was Franklin Merrell-Wolff. Our activities include publishing and distributing the Wolff Archive, which can be found on this website; on this site there is also a summary of Wolff’s lifework, as well as a number of forums about Wolff that range from the historical and philosophical to works inspired by his attainments. Please join us.
The Franklin Merrell-Wolff Archive
The Franklin Merrell-Wolff Fellowship is pleased to announce that it has been charged with the task of collecting, scanning, and inventorying the complete Franklin Merrell-Wolff Archive, and that Stanford University will accept the Wolff Archive as a special collection. The Wolff Archive will include all of Wolff's published and unpublished manuscripts, books, articles, audio tapes and recordings, correspondence, drafts and notes, photographs, video material, educational and student materials, as well as other material (including works authored by either of Wolff’s wives). In addition, the following “Related Material” will be sent to Stanford: an inventory of the books in Wolff’s library, digital images of any handwritten annotations in these books, digital copies of the photos on Wolff’s office walls, and an inventory (as well as photographs) of the memorabilia in his office.
This task will no doubt prove to be an expensive one, and we would be grateful for your help with this project. Please click on the ‘Donate’ button just to the upper left of this box and give what you can to this cause. All donations are tax-deductible, and we will send you a receipt for tax purposes. As we get this material scanned, we will begin to post it on this website for member access.
