More Than a Spoon and Fork

The History Behind the Oneida Name

A note from the desk of Charles Tolbert

If you have found yourself toying with the flatware at the dining table while waiting for your food, you may have noticed “Oneida” on the back side of the fork or spoon. That name leads to an interesting story about an early American religious group and its phenomenal economic success. The Oneida Community began as a utopian religious commune based on doctrinal ideas advanced by a charismatic leader, John Humphrey Noyes, and his disciples in Putney, Vermont, in 1841. Noyes and the original 87 members so aroused the hostility of the surrounding community that they left Putney in 1847 and established themselves anew

at Oneida, New York. Early in seminary training, Noyes came to believe in and preach the doctrine of “perfectionism,” the notion that after conversion one is free of all sin. He also became convinced that the Second Coming of Christ was not an event of the future but had already occurred. Thus, by following Noyes’ beliefs and dictates, his followers could build Christ’s millennial kingdom on earth. It was, however, Noyes’ ideas concerning sexual activity that made him notorious. He considered sexual union very important but rejected monogamy. The application of his views led to the practice of

“complex marriage” in which every woman was the wife of every man and every man was the husband of every woman. Sexual relations were strictly regulated and propagation of children was a matter of community supervision. Social control in general was maintained by a procedure called “mutual criticism.” Any member of the community was subject to criticism by a committee or the community as a whole during a general meeting. These sessions were not only means for reducing personal guilt and aggression but also agencies for enforcing control and promoting community cohesion. At the time the community Continued on page 12

Socializing. Now that you don’t have to worry about meetings, family obligations or business functions, socializing is a lot easier to arrange! You also know that socializing doesn’t necessarily mean dressing up and going out, it can be as simple as sitting with friends and fellow Providence Park residents and experiencing good conversation.

Oneida - Continued from page 1 reached its peak in economic development in 1879, it had a population of about 300 with all adults working, each according to his or her ability. A rather complex organizational structure of committees surprisingly facilitated building successful industrial enterprises, such as metal tools, silk embroidery, canned goods, and silverware. The year 1879 also marked the end of a grand experiment in religious socialism. The forced departure of Noyes left a leadership void, resulting in the breakup of the community with conflict within and external pressures for change. In the effort to maintain the silverware production, the remaining members organized a joint-

stock company, the Oneida Community Limited. In 1899 Oneida started the production of silverplated flatware. Following decades of success, the company managed an innovative transition to the manufacture of stainlesssteel flatware in 1961 that eventually dwarfed its production of silver-plate. By the 1980s, the business made about half of all flatware sold in this country; however, in 2005 it ceased all American manufacturing operations, ending a 124 year tradition. Even so, Oneida Limited remains one of the largest suppliers of dinnerware to the foodservice industry in the United States.
