- Biographical or historical data
- Wendell Phillips was born 29 November 1811 in Boston Massachusetts, to John Phillips (1770-1823) and Sarah Walley Phillips (1772-1845). He attended the Boston Latin School and graduated from Harvard in 1831. A member of the American Anti-Slavery Society, Phillips emerged as an eloquent and powerful speaker against slavery. He often worked closely with William Lloyd Garrison in the years before the Civil War to further the society's cause. During the Civil War, Phillips was a harsh critic of Abraham Lincoln's (1809-1865) policies, but strongly supported the Emancipation Proclamation. After the war ended, Phillips argued for the continuation of the Anti-Slavery Society in order to work for full rights for former slaves. Phillips was also a strong advocate for labor reform and prohibition. He ran as a candidate for governor of Massachusetts in 1870 on the Labor Reform Party and prohibition ticket. Phillips married Ann Terry Greene (d. 1885) 12 October 1837, and they had no children. Phillips died in Boston 2 February 1884.
