Sax Rohmer and the Golden Dawn
I asked elsewhere and again off topic if everyone here was aware of the $100,000 raised by the sale via Weiser of the late Nick Culpeper's Crowley collection that went to Addenbrookes who treated him during his final illness with stomach cancer some years ago? It has purchased a gastrointestinal machine to be named Old Nick.
Fabulous story. Lovely man.

I certainly can't speak for everyone, although I will be happy to do so if the pay scale is adequate. Speaking for myself (this pays substandard wages), I doubt if everyone is aware of this charitable activity; Ihave been aware of said charitable act, but no, I didn't know that 100 Gs were collected and donated.
Weiser announced that they've been sending amounts every quarter and that they'd assumed it was just going into a general fund, and when Addenbrookes told them they suggested naming the machine might be nice. In response the hospital asked about the nature of Nick's books so they could tell patients (presumably in a newsletter or site). It might make a good press story - Crowley books fund essential medical care - as it confounds the usual tabloid view of anything 'occult' if anyone has connections there. I haven't been able to raise any interest myself. The fact of Nick being related to both the original Nicholas Culpeper and Ann Boleyn might add a frisson.
