I'm so very glad to see a
resurgence of AP in Nawlins and of course you wouldn't expected to be familiar
with Wannamaker since he was one of the "early pioneers," so to say, in AP. I
don't believe he was a native of the city even while living there, and
I came across something about him due to his having translated or written
something by or about Steiner. I believe he was born in China of missionary
parents and had quite a wonderfully eventful life in many varying areas of the
I believe the Bobby Matherne
you mention might be the one from Luling now living on West Bank, who
has for some years written many book reviews on "the interests of the
day" for his home printing business? If I remember correctly he
"skims a given book's highlights", so to say, while selling some sort
of psychological method named Doylectics as his main
So far, Renee, my
sister may still lean more toward Edgar Cayce than Steiner - ACK!
As very young searchers we both began with Cayce but I soon found Steiner -
HOORAY - but I'm "casually" sending her this or that RS work, saying "This
is an extra and I can't bear to just throw it away..." To be truthful, I
feel like gluing the "seeds" into place, but she's tougher than I am! :) It
seems I may be seeing a few cracks in her armor now and then, so there's hope
I do want to thank you for
your precious offer to contact her, and who knows? Some seeds may hopefully
begin to "sprout!"
Thanks for the welcome!
I was quite surprised by the interest in Steiner in
New Orleans. I am not familiar with Olin Wannamaker but many of you
might know Bobby Matherne who hails form this great city. His Steiner
book reviews are posted on www.doyletics.com/arj. He
does an outstanding job on these reviews!
Is your sister
interested in Steiner, also? The group isn't easy to find,
so if she is interested I could call her.
Hope I can sent this without having to try

What a joy to hear from
you and to hear about your keen interest in Steiner! New Orleans is where I
grew up, and my sister is now in Metairie, but many years ago N.O. was far
more active in Anthroposophy than perhaps now - at least one of the "wise
oldtimers" lived there for awhile, Olin Wannamaker, and you may find his
name here or there as having translated various Steiner lectures/books.
It seems some of us have
had some difficulty sending postings to our list, since the words below
the "ad" following our signatures gives the wrong address, and for awhile
yahoo.com itself was causing difficulties. firstname.lastname@example.org is the
correct address and the one you came through on! HOORAY!

My name is Renee and I a fairly new to this
group having first come
on in October, 2003. I am also new to
YahooMail.com and have been
having trouble getting this post
I have read most of Rudolf Steiner's books and several
his "books" from his lectures. I truly love reading all
Steiner, and I have been enjoying the discussions on this
especially like the ties to astrology.
Because of the problems you
all have been having with the list,
perhaps it is time to introduce
myself to the group and give up
"lurking" in the shadows.
I have been fortunate to have found a
Steiner Study Group in the New
Orleans area and have met some
wonderful, interesting and caring
friends. We also choose a book
to study for Holy Nights, usually
one of Steiners books on the
gospels. I would love to be a part of
the discussions if you
start at the end of this month.
I hope this post goes through this
time. I would hate to be
