Here is where the files of the pages of early issues of The Theosophist and other magazines are stored. We have an ongoing project to scan each old issue, page by page, to preserve the information from disappearing as the pages gradually crumble due to age and decay.

We have scanned the pages of some of our periodicals. A sample is to the right. Below it is a very rough translation by a primitive Optical Character Recognition program. It is this file, in Word format, which needs to be modified to match the image scan.

The Portland Lodge has only those issues which were donated by members over the years. Our collection is incomplete.

Here is where the volunteer editors can upload their edited files.
