The Franklin Merrell-Wolff Fellowship is a public charity whose mission is to educate the public about the life and work of Franklin Merrell-Wolff, as well as to publish and distribute the work produced by this twentieth-century, American philosopher.

This website plays a vital role in our efforts to fulfill this mission. Here you may access the complete archive of Franklin Merrell-Wolff; in addition, you will find a brief biographical sketch of Wolff’s life, an introduction to his philosophy, photographs, interviews, and much more.


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 The Wolff Archive will include all of Wolff's published and unpublished manuscripts, books, articles, audio tapes and recordings, correspondence, drafts and notes, photographs, video material, educational and student materials, as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.
