In 1949, 51 per cent of married Boston Brahmins had 3+ children. Episcopalians (Anglicans) outnumbered Unitarians by more than 2:1. 81 per cent of households surveyed, drawn from the city’s Social Register, were Republican. 91 per cent of husbands were university-educated.
Of these, 71 per cent were Harvard graduates. Elite institutions were regional; US Southerners had Vanderbilt and Virginia. Few Brahmin women worked, and only 13 per cent were university-educated. Women’s clubs and charities were still popular.
Members of this caste were conservative in their politics, but also in their habits. Only 2 per cent owned a television (US 1950: 9 per cent). 77 per cent of women attended church (US 1949: ~40 per cent, I think). Brahmins exhibited an unusual fondness for genealogy, particularly
with regard to their English and patriot forbears. Many descendants of New England Puritans seem to have abandoned Unitarianism in favour of high church Episcopalianism; I will have to study this further. Many Unitarians had earlier supported the Fugitive Slave Act.
There seems to have been a conservative turn of some sort. Brahmins certainly had more children.

I’m not convinced that libtard ideology comes from New England Protestants. Indeed, by 1969, Protestant Americans were the most conservative in academia. There are other culprits. ImageImage
