Owen was the father of Robert Dale
Owen, Scottish-born American social reformer and politician (1801 - 1877).
One of New Harmony's prominent citizens was the anarchist author Josiah Warren
(1798 - 1874).
Owen's management the cotton mills and village of New Lanark
became a model community, in which the drive towards progress
and prosperity through new technology of the Industrial
Revolution was tempered by a caring and humane regime. New
Lanark had the first Infant School, a creche for working
mothers, free medical care, and comprehensive education,
including evening classes. Leisure and recreation were not
forgotten; there were concerts, dancing, music-making and
pleasant landscaped areas for the benefit of the community. The
village attracted international attention."Source
