James A. Long

   James A. Long took over the former Point 
Loma Theosophical Society after controversy 
in about 1950.  Below is a partial list of 
members he shortly Kicked Out of the Society, 
and who after apparently resigned.  Long 
said he "did not want them to create more 
bad karma for themselves" (because they were 
antagonistic to _him_, and the way he took 
over the Society.)  This list comes from 
No. 2 of a "News Bulletin" put out by 
E. Small in 1951-52.  (There's six issues, 
far as I know.)  You might notice the list 
includes de Zirkoff, the Plummers, 
the Smalls, Jan Venema, the Harris's, 
Helen Todd, etc.
