Biographies of the exponents of Theosophy

Robert Crosbie
He was born in the U.S. in 1849; he was a disciple and collaborator of W. Q. Judge.

On the 25th June 1909 he founded the United Lodge of Theosophists. He drew the principles of theosophic work in this age from the two Masters of Theosophy – Founders of the 19th century movement – and made them the basis for the practice of U.L.T., in order to spread its philosophy. He published the journal ‘Theosophy’ in Los Angeles. Amongst his main works we can remember ‘The Friend Philosopher’ and ‘The Eternal Truths’. Crosbie died on the 25th June 1919.

William Quan Judge
He was born in Ireland on the 13th April 1851.

He was one of the Promoters of the Theosophic Society and the main responsible for the spreading of Theosophy in the U. S.
He was the president of the American branch of the T.S., constituted in 1886; he was also the founder of the independent journal ‘The Path’.

Amongst his works we remember: ‘The Letters that helped me’, ‘The Ocean of Theosophy’ and ‘Commentaries on Bhagavad-Gita’/

His name and his memory are mainly linked to the integrity he had in divulging the Original Teachings of the modern Theosophical Movement, privileging a clear and simple language. H.P. Blavatsky called him ‘my only friend’. Judge died on the 21st March 1896.
