Crowley's 'Adept of Adepts': Evan Morgan, Eccentric Occultist Extraordinaire

Tonight Paul Busby, biographer, introduces us to an almost unknown occultist and eccentric, Evan Frederic Morgan, 2nd Viscount Tredegar (1893–1949).

A friend of Aleister Crowley, Evan Morgan was (as Busby has discovered) actually a practitioner of the art magical. Crowley himself called him ‘Adept of Adepts’. Morgan was known in his own day not so much for his occultism but, in aristocratic society, for his extravagant lifestyle. Tonight’s speaker has written his biography and tonight reveals his findings, and gives a greater insight into the life in the 1930s of the work of Aleister Crowley, as well as allowing an appreciation of the nexus of ideas and personal links that made up the 1930s British occult community.
