Membership list Theosophical Society 1875-1915 online
Without the Theosophical Society, founded in New York in 1875, our modern art would have looked very different. No other western esoteric organization or its offshoots had so much influence on the forming of modern art theories.
The Society was an early modern example of effective mass media communication strategy. Lectures, pamphlets, personal networking, translations of major works in every thinkable language resulted in a globally oriented organization.
But who actually was a member of the Society? You can now discover this at The Art Archives. The period 1875-1915 is now online, covering no less than 57.761 members. The database is the only primary source now widely available.
