PAUL FOSTER CASE needs no introduction to those fortunate enough to have known him as a teacher and lecturer. To those who met him first through the pages of this book, a few words about his background and varied activities, will be of interest. Dr. Case came from a straight Yankee ancestry on both sides: back to bashful Miles Standish on his mother's side, and from a family of clipper and coast-wise skippers on his father's. He was born in Fairport, New York, in 1884. He passed on in 1954. As a mere lad of sixteen, he became interested in the theatre and for twenty or more years, engaged in various enterprises: a season with a showboat in the early years, as a musical director, up through musical comedy to vaudeville in its hey-day.

Ann Davies succeeded him as head of Builders of the Adytum, which has become a world-wide organization with Headquarters in Los Angeles, California W042.

One of his interesting hobbies was legerdemain; he was a member of the International Brotherhood of Magicians and International Guild of Prestidigitators. Out of Dr. Case's busy days of teaching and lecturing, and with a rich background of tradition and experience, he found time to write a unique book-his gleanings of the wisdom of past ages. ...
