Text

L.W.Rogers, President of the American Theosophical Society, recently attacked the biography of Annie Besant "The Passionate Pilgrim" by Gertrude Marvin Williams on the ground that it contained malicious misinformation about Charles W. Leadbeater. You may wish to know more of this "scandal that rocked American Theosophical circles to their depths twenty-five years ago." A trip to the Library may prove fruitful.
