Heym, Gerard (d. ca. 1974)
Scholar, bibliophile, and student of the occult during the
1930s in Britain. Although Heym was a close associate of S. L.
MacGregor Mathers and other members of the Hermetic
Order of the Golden Dawn, he does not appear to have been
a member himself.
Heym had a special interest in alchemy and in 1937 became
a founding member of the Society for the Study of Alchemy and
Early Chemistry, established for ‘‘the scientific and historical
study of the branches of learning named in its title.’’ Heym contributed
to the society’s journal, Ambix.
