Comforter League of Light – your help needed
It’s a little known fact that before Spalding published Life and Teachings as a book in 1924, it was published in periodical form in 1922 by a San Francisco based New Thought group called Comforter League of Light.
I managed to find a single copy of the Comforter magazine from 1922 and there is a chapter of Life and Teachings included, and it refers to Spalding as a member of the group. I have also researched the founder of the group Florence Gloria Crawford who wrote several books, and spoke frequently in San Francisco during this time according to newspaper archives.
Unfortunately I have been unable to locate any other copies of The Comforter from those years, which would be very interesting in terms of comparing how Spalding’s manuscript changed over time. If anyone does find copies of The Comforter or other information about this group, please contact me!
