Alexis de Tocqueville
The Tocqueville Society is named in honor of Alexis de Tocqueville, a French historian who traveled to America in the 1800’s and observed a spirit of voluntary association and effort for the common good. In 1835, he penned Democracy in America, an enthusiastic account about how Americans reached out to help one another.
