Abstract

Herein, the roots of Mayo's active radicalism on America's western frontier are traced to both his knowledge of conditions in Manchester, England during the first 26 years of his life and the impress of laissez faire in America. Books and a close friendship with the Populist and Farmer's Alliance leader Ignatius Donnelly only fortified Mayo's convictions. Mayo never flagged in his social activism nor sacrificed his radical ideology.
