Among the papers present for Alexis Ferm, the principal of the Modern School who was usually known as "Uncle, " is a diary, 1893-1906, 1909, 1926-1928 and 1942-1945, containing sporadic entries. In the early section, Ferm describes attending lectures at the Ethical Society and speaking at the Brooklyn Theosopical Society (he was a founding member) at which he was to meet his wife Elizabeth Byrne. He describes their courtship and marriage in 1898 and the founding of the Children's Playhouse in New Rochelle, New York, in 1901. Ferm narrates in detail his observations of the children at the Playhouse, which moved to Dyker Heights, Brooklyn, in 1902. During the diary's middle period the Ferms lived in New Jersey, briefly at Stony Hill in Berkeley Heights Township (near the single tax colony of Free Acres) and then at their cottage in Newfoundland (on the Morris County side of the Pequannock River?). Ferm describes gardening, teaching at the Road to Freedom Camp in Croton-on-Hudson, New York, and his visits to the Modern Schools at Stelton and Peekskill, New York, as well as his reaction to a Passaic mill workers strike and the execution of Sacco and Vanzetti. In the diary's final section, Ferm writes about the illness and death of his wife and his subsequent discouragement with the potential of the anarchist movement
