GERALD GARDNER

those who read this might not know that Gerald Gardner met Aleister Crowley who had some influence on him and vice versa, probably, and that Gardner once had a Museum of Witchcraft on the Isle of Man. Gardner spent time in the Far East and wrote a book on the kris in which he gives his ideas on the origins of the marvelous weapons and some accounts and descriptions of interest concerning these weapons. Many line drawings are in the book which has influenced later writers on the subject, possibly inspiring them to do so......though nowadays very colorful photos of rare and valuable krises are to be found in books and also in various world museums.....Gardner also became interested in Pygmys and as we now know claims have been made about ancient small people in areas he visited and studied,etc. At any rate, more can be said about Gardner who has influenced Witchcraft/Wicca, Paganism and Neo Paganism, and a variety of other movements along the same line.......althugh many critics tend to decry, if not despise, his contributions and overall influence....more at another time...
