Abraham Everett

Abraham Everett, better known as Abraham Woods, enjoyed reversing his name to call himself "Woods Abram."  At age 42, he joined Amos Bronson Alcott's utopian community, Fruitlands, at Harvard, Massachusetts in 1843.  Before enrolling at Fruitlands he worked as a cooper and at one point had been committed to an insane asylum.  Jones Very, therefore, is not alone in being considered a Transcendental madman.
