Web Interview Series Features Unknown Influence on Ahbez Canon

J. William Lloyd was a late 19th/early 20th century radical American author. His subjects included theosophy, anti-statism, anarchy, holistic diets, and a back-to-nature lifestyle. Among other published tomes, he wrote “The Scripture of the Serene Life” (1921) and “The Natural Man: A Romance of the Golden Age” (1902), which together influenced Eden Ahbez’s final project, “The Scripture of the Golden Age” (1990s).

Lloyd historian and collector Barefoot Ted MacDonald recounts Lloyd’s life and artistic output, as well as his connection to key Ahbez friends in the 1930s and ’40s, in an exclusive interview with Ahbez historian Brian Chidester. This is episode 2 of the new online interview series “Finders/Keepers” and can be seen here:
