Keeping the Link Unbroken: Theosophical Studies Presented to Ted G. Davy on His Seventy-fifth Birthday

Edited by Michael Gomes

Ted Davy edited a remarkable Theosophical journal called The Canadian Theosophist from 1961 until 1991.  This historical journal, founded in 1920, focused upon the works of H.P. Blavatsky and the Theosophical Movement which she initiated in the last quarter of the nineteenth century.  Under Mr. Davy’s editorship, the bi-monthly journal

became the source of information for those interested in the growing field   of Theosophical History.  Contributors to this book represent some of the leading scholars of the Theosophical Movement, who present a variety of topics from Theosophy’s myriad of subject matter and of course, its history.
