George Ripley (1802–1880) was an American Unitarian minister, critic, journalist, and social reformer associated with the Transcendentalist movement. He was an 1823 graduate of Harvard College and also studied at the Harvard Divinity School. In1841 he founded the Utopian community Brook Farm in West Roxbury, Massachusetts. Brook Farm was a cooperative community based on a transcendental utopian model. In 1844, it began to run on a model inspired by Charles Fourier and in 1845 officially declared itself a Fourierist Phalanx. In 1846 he split with the community and it folded in 1847. After the failure of Brook Farm, he worked as a freelance journalist and in 1849 was hired by Horace Greeley at the New York Tribune. He also later published the New American Cyclopaedia.
