An early astrological organization that grew out of the magazine
Modern Astrology, published in the late nineteenth century
in London. The society was organized in 1895 by Walter Gorn
Old. Alan Leo, a fellow Theosophist, became the first president.
The society lasted for approximately eight years but ran
into criticism because it was almost exclusively confined to London.
In 1903 it was disbanded and the new Society for Astrological
Research, with a wider national focus, was organized in
Naylor, P. I. H. Astrology A Fascinating History. North Hollywood,
Calif. Wilshire Book Co. 1970.
