    (March 18, 1901-August 29, 1990)
    Born in Canada
    Philosopher and New Age guru
    Author of 'The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Quabbalistic and Roscrucisian Symbolic Philosophy'
    Founded The Philosophical Research Society
    Gave an estimated 8,000 plus lectures in his life and wrote over 200 books
    Book titles include; 'The Guru,' 'Questions Answered on the Problems of Life,' 'Man: The Grand Symbol of the Mysteries and Essays in Occult Anatomy,' and 'The Hermetic Marriage: Being a Study in the Philosophy of the Thrice Greatest Hermes'
    33rd Degree Freemason
    Almost nothing is known about his early life, all that is known for sure, based on his autobiography, 'Growing Up with Grandmother,' is his date and place of birth and that he was raised by his maternal grandmother.
    We have him to thank for the rejection of the idea anyone can know truth; what's right or true for you might not be right or true for me etc.
    He saw hidden symbols in almost everything; not just literature and art, but physical objects and scientific principles as well.
    He gave much of today's New Age Movement its intellectual underpinnings.
    Whether you agree with him or not, he was unquestionably brilliant.
    He obviously had outstanding leadership and management skills and a tremendous work ethic.
    His institute, The Philosophical Research Society, stills stands and is dedicated to the search for wisdom wherever it might lead.
    Unlike many men in his position, no type of scandal, sexual or financial, was ever attached to his name.
