Robert Crosbie

Robert Crosbie was born in Montreal, Canada. From his earliest years he was deeply interested in religious and philosophical subjects. He moved to Boston in 1886, and attended meetings at the Theosophical Society there.When W. Q. Judge came to speak, he was introduced to Robert Crosbie and they immediately forged a bond of friendship and trust. Robert Crosbie became a student of HPB through correspondence. After the death of WQJ, Katherine Tingley became prominent. She established an institution at Point Loma, California. At her request, Robert Crosbie joined the Point Loma group. He left after several years. He moved to South Pasadena and started a study class. In 1909, this group became the United Lodge of Theosophists (ULT). In 1912, Robert Crosbie founded the magazine Theosophy, which he continued to edit until his death. Robert Crosbie stressed impersonality and anonymity to protect the work and to help protect the workers from pride and ambition.
