Dr. Raymond Bernard was born Walter Seigmeister in 1901 to a family of Russian non-practising Jews in New York City. His father was a doctor which gave him an early interest in health. As a young man he became deeply interested in the works of the Theosophists and Rudolph Steiner's Anthropo- sophists, especially those works relating to Atlantis and Lemuria.
His B.A. was from Columbia University in 1924, and his M.A. and Ph.D were in education -- from New York University (in 1930 and 1932 respectively). His Ph.D. dissertation was, "Theory and Practice of Dr. Rudolf Steiner's Pedagogy."
His final and most popular book was the "The Hollow Earth." He died of pneumonia on September 10, 1965, while searching the tunnel openings to the interior of the Earth, in South America. He was an individual who was not afraid to explore well beyond the confines of the `establishment's convention', and the spirit of his controversial research lives on....
