Scope and Contents

An address census showing the mobility of Ida Hulery Fletcher, Llewellyn George and the Portland School of Astrology. In 1900, Ida Hulery Fletcher founded The Portland School of Astrology. In 1901, Fletcher’s student Llewellyn George made an impression on her and she would invite him to become a partner of the School. The School was always located where Fletcher was living, which would also be the residence of Llewellyn George and other teachers of the School. In October 1911 and for unknown reasons, Llewellyn George would sever his ties with the School and its publishing arm, Bulletina Publishing Co. He would go on to establish his own school and publishing company beginning January 1912: Llewellyn Publishing Co. and the Llewellyn College of Astrology. The Portland School of Astrology continued to operate until about 1914 after which only the bookselling component survived for an additional four years before closing its doors about 1918. This year is the last time Ida Hulery Fletcher is mentioned as a seller of “Astrological and Occult Books” in the newspapers and periodicals until the announcement of her death from paralysis on May 7, 1919 while living with her youngest sister in Oakland, California.
