The FSTC's full collection of archives is now online and searchable. From the site:
The archived documents of the Fairhope Single Tax Corporation tell the story of the founding of the Fairhope Single Tax Colony in 1894 on the eastern shore of Mobile Bay and the development of the community. The Populist reformers who founded Fairhope were interested in conducting an economic and social experiment based on the principles of the economist Henry George, and came to Baldwin County, Alabama to establish a cooperative colony to demonstrate the theory.
The collection includes correspondence, meeting minutes, financial reports and printed articles about the founding of Fairhope and the daily activities in the Colony (1890-1997). In addition, papers from the personal collections of important Fairhopers (including but not limited to E. B. Gaston, C. A. Gaston, James Bellangee, Lydia J. Newcomb Comings and Anne B. Call) and single-tax reformers with ties to the Colony (Joseph Fels, Daniel Kiefer, Fiske Warren among others) are included.
