Manly P. Hall‘s life is as much an enigma as the subjects he studied. During his lifetime, he was reluctant to reveal much about his personal life, and that will continue to be respected. Just as an artist is best known through her art, Mr. Hall’s life is reflected in his words and works, and how he labored tirelessly to bring essential knowledge to sincere seekers.

Read a short bio of Mr. Hall from a 1929 lecture program.
