Term: R. Swinburne Clymer

(1878–1966) Heavily influenced by 19th century occultist and sex magician Paschal Beverly Randolph, he kept several of Randolph’s books in print and used the concepts in the Fraternitas Rosae Crucis when he became the Grand Master of that group in 1922 (succeeding Edward H. Brown). Besides running that order and writing numerous books, Clymer is famous for battling another Rosicrucian group, AMORC, in court.
