Manly Palmer Hall was a Canadian-born author and mystic. He is perhaps most famous for his work The Secret Teachings of All Ages: An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic and Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy, which is widely regarded as his magnum opus, and which he published at the age of 27.
He has been widely recognized as a leading scholar in the fields of religion, mythology, mysticism, and the occult.
In 1934, Hall founded the Philosophical Research Society (PRS) in Los Angeles, California, dedicating it to an idealistic approach to the solution of human problems. The PRS claims to be non-sectarian and entirely free from educational, political, or ecclesiastical control, and the Society’s programs stress the need for the integration of philosophy, religion, and science into one system of instruction. The PRS Library, a public facility devoted to source materials in obscure fields, has many rare and scarce items now impossible to obtain elsewhere.
In 1973 (47 years after writing The Secret Teachings of All Ages), Hall was recognized as a 33º Mason (the highest honor conferred by the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite), at a ceremony held at PRS on December 8th, despite never being initiated into the physical craft.
In his over 70-year career, Hall delivered approximately 8,000 lectures in the United States and abroad, authored over 150 books and essays, and wrote countless magazine articles.

Recommended Malcolm X book #10 “Seventh Child: A Family Memoir Of Malcolm X” published by Carol Publishing Group and as told my Ella Little Collins (Malcolm’s half-sister) and Rodnell P. Collins (Nephew Of Malcolm X) With A. Peter Bailey (A brother who worked with Malcolm in the O.A.A.U) (1998)
The last year of Malcolm’s productive life was filled with an overt barrage of vicious verbal attacks from several key Nation of Islam officials, including the loquacious Louis X (now Louis Farrakhan), of Temple Eleven in Boston, and equally vicious, more covert attacks from conniving FBI and CIA operatives. I was among those family members and supporters who were frustrated, enraged, and disgusted because of our inability to protect him. As late as the early morning of February 21,1965, Ma and I were discussing with him possible actions he should take to protect himself. They mostly involved leaving the country with his family. Uncle Malcolm appeared to listen, but when we last saw him, near sunrise that morning, he still hadn’t decided exactly what to do about safety concerns. Our last gesture was to wave goodbye to one another as he drive away. Later that afternoon, now back in Boston. we heard about the assassination.
“I already knew what I had to do,” Ma told me later. “I had constantly prodded Malcolm to write his autobiography. ‘Get something out there for black people to use as a guide and a historical document,’ I told him. ‘Also, it will help provide for your children. Don’t leave them financially strapped like our father did you, your mother, and your brothers and sisters when he was murdered by white supremacists.’ Now people used that same argument on me. Because Malcolm’s life was cut short, there were important things around his life not included in the autobiography. I had information about many of those things because he confided in me.” She felt a responsibility to document them.
“This is the most important book on Malcolm X since publication of the Autobiography.”
