Last person to know CW Leadbeater
Dec 30, 2008 09:58 PM
Last Thursday, Christopher Bannister died, aged 98. Born in 1910 he is
the last person, of whom I am aware, to know Leadbeater. He had a fund
of stories about his contacts with the old man for whom he had a deep
respect. Christopher always denied that Leadbeater had improper sexual
realtions with his pupils. He vividly remembered the 'truth is a
pathless land' happening & its impact on the TS and had many
experiences with such as Arundale, Wedgwood, Rukmini Devi.
An architect by profession, Christopher was a gentle man in the true
meaning of the term, deeply interested up till the time of his death in
the latest science, particularly cosmology. He remained a TS member
until his death.
