K. Paul Johnson
K. Paul Johnson is a retired librarian (MLS, University of Alabama) who has authored four books and contributed chapters to two collections. His first two books from SUNY Press were groundbreaking studies of the Theosophical Society’s early years. His chapter in the current collection Imagining the East reports new research findings on the Bengali Renaissance as a background for the TS mission in India. As coeditor of Letters to the Sage: The Selected Correspondence of Thomas Moore Johnson, he helped to transcribe, annotate, and index letters from dozens of early TS members as well as members of the Hermetic Brotherhood of Luxor. His presentation In Search of Zanoni reports on an investigation of the most mysterious of the sixty correspondents who appear in the two-volume collection.
