Many of the astrologers on our site still have books in print, so you may be able to find them in your local metaphysical or general bookstores or on-line at major chains. Some good sources of both in-print and out-of-print books or of conference and seminar tapes are given below, with links to their sites where available. Also given below are rich sources of information about the people on this memorial and about astrological history.



BOOK SOURCES

The Astrology Center of America, also known as the National Clearing House of Astrology Books, is an excellent on-line source for ordering both in print and out of print books for virtually every astrological author. This link will take you to their author index, but if you have a particular author in mind, you might also check their Recycled Books section.

The Seattle Metaphysical Library , formerly called As-You-Like-It, is a membership organization with a collection of over 12,000 metaphysical books, including a vast number of astrology books. Many of our honorees are included, along with their out-of-print books. Mail-order memberships, which entitle you to have these books sent to your home, are $35/year. To reach them, follow the link above, call 206-329-1794, email them at contact@SeattleMetaphysicalLibrary.org, or write to them at 2220 NW Market Street, #L-05, Seattle, WA 98107.

If neither of these sources are productive, you might give Bookfinder.com a try. There is a search engine which searches a wide variety of used and rare book sources.


TAPE SOURCES:

Below are sources for tapes for a wide range of speakers, both those who have passed on and those who are still with us. (We cannot vouch for the quality of individual tapes, as that is dependent on many factors, but these are all reputable sources.)

Pegasus Tapes: Gina Ceaglio has preserved for us a priceless direct experience of some of our finest astrologers who have passed on, like Dane Rudhar, Howard Sasportas, and Richard Idemon’s famous seminars with Liz Greene. Pegasus also carries fine tapes by many current speakers. To visit their web site, click here.

The National Council for Geocosmic Research (NCGR) has a large library of tapes from various conferences over the years, including many by our honorees, and you may order copies. The tape librarian is Valerie Vaughn, 51 Longmeadow Drive, Amherst, MA 01002.

Bulldog Audio, directed by Joan McEvers, has a large variety of tapes from various conferences, including many from past United Astrology Congresses (UAC). For a list of tapes, send her an email.

The (International Society for Astrological Research) has archive tapes from their conferences over the years and is presently engaged in a project of making them available through Sun Recording. ISAR’s tape librarian is Georgia Stathis.


SOURCES OF DATA AND INFORMATION
FOR THIS MEMORIAL

This memorial and virtual museum was only possible because of the detailed record keeping and research done by a variety of people over the decades. Some of the major sources arebelow.

We are all deeply indebted to Lois Rodden, the standard-setter for data collection in our field. She has devoted the greater portion of her life to amassing birth information, drawing on historical collections, tracking down data on her own, and also inspiring many colleagues to pass along data they encountered. She and Mark McDonough joined forces to turn this collection into an invaluable CD-ROM of over 25,000 birth records. For more information, visit the website for AstroDatabank. The majority of the astrologers’ birth and death data on this site came from that collection and was used with her permission.

The Astrology Encyclopedia, by James R. Lewis, (Visible Ink, Detroit, MI, 1994) is a treasure trove of astrological information and lives up to its name completely. In addition to articles on a vast number of astrological topics, it also contains biographies of astrological greats of several centuries. It is available on line through major book chains and through AstroAmerica.

Astrological Pioneers of America, by James H. Holden and Robert A. Hughes, was published by the American Federation of Astrologers in 1988. This book is a directory of birth and biographical information on hundreds of Twentieth Century astrologers, living and dead. A great many of them were members of the AFA, but it also includes astrologers from other countries. To order a copy, contact the AFA.

Thanks, also, to Ronnie Dreyer, Tem Tarriktar, and other editors of astrological publications who have been so generous in sharing memorials and photographs.
