Since joining the Theosophical Society in 1968 at age seventeen, Michael Gomes has remained committed to its ideals. He has gone on to become one of the best known historians of the movement, as well regarded among theosophical and esoteric groups as he is in academic circles. His publications, which range from new editions of Blavatsky’s writings to examinations of contentious events in theosophical history, have contributed toward a better understanding of the modern theosophical movement. Michael Gomes is Director of the Emily Sellon Memorial Library in New York City.
