William Cullen Bryant (1794-1878)

This distinguished American Man of Letters was a nature poet, journalist and editor of the New York Evening Post  for fifty years. Bryant's writings championed the rights of abolitionists, workers and immigrants. His influence helped establish important New York City civic institutions such as Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and N.Y. Medical College.

"The right to discuss freely and openly, 
by speech, by the pen, by the press, 
all political questions, and to examine 
and animadvert (speak out) upon all 
political institutions, is a right so clear 
and certain, so interwoven with our other 
liberties, so necessary, in fact to their 
existence, that without it we must fall 
at once into depression or anarchy."

William Cullen Bryant, 1837
From "Defending the Right of Abolitionists
to Free Speech"
