I was 28 and it was the summer of 1971 that I had gone to Far Horizons a Theosophical Camp in the Sierras. Rukmini Devi Arundale, wife of the thrid President of the Adyar Theosophical Society was there, giving a lecture. She asked me if I would like to come and work with her in India cataloguing her collection which included that of her husband, private letters of Annie Besant, Miss Esther Bright, C.W. Leadbeater, C. Jinarajadasa and many other influential leaders. By October 1972, I was off to India. Since that time she encouraged me to start the Ross Collection. I have devoted a greater part of the 40 years to building the rare archives and caring for the collection to be known as the Ross Collection.
The Ross Collection contains over one hundred bank boxes of authentic letters and documents showing J. Krishnamurti's relationship to the Krotona Institute, the Adyar Theosophical Society, and its Esoteric Section from the trun of the century to 2010. The eight published books are not an advertisement for Theosophy, but as a factual history, as far as they go shedding light on the role of J. Krishnamurti's relationship to the Adyar Theosophical Society. These books should be used as reference source for future research.
