Josiah Warren was a reformer, philosophical anarchist and inventor. Born in Boston, he was living in Cincinnati by 1821. In 1825 he fell under the influence of Robert Owen and moved to New Harmony, Ind., but within two years found he was opposed to all forms of government. He returned to Cincinnati in 1827 and founded an "equity store." During the next two decades, he experimented with different kinds of equity stores, and continued to invent. In 1850 he founded a town on Long Island called Modern Times, which lasted until 1862. He wrote three books, Equitable Commerce, True Civilization, and Written Music Remodeled. He died in Massachusetts.
