New Century Path.
An organ of Katherine Tingley's branch of Theosophy, most notable today because the issue for August 13, 1905, in an article on "Major-General Abner Doubleday" adds the note: "It is of interest to note the fact that it is to this stanch Theosophist, well-known army officer and author, that the national game of Base Ball owes not only its name, but also in large degree its development from a simpler sport; or, indeed, according to some writers, its very invention." This was the second promulgation of the claim (first made by a man named Abner Graves a few months earlier in an Ohio newspaper) and its publication probably owed much to the fact that Albert G. Spaulding, the sporting goods robber baron, was in the process of trying to establish baseball’s pedigree and was, with his wife, a member of Tingley's Theosophical Society and lived at Lomaland. Doubleday, despite the lack of any evidence to support the claim, was a worthy candidate because he had joined the Theosophical Society in New York in 1878, had acted as its "President Ad Interim" when Blavatsky left for India, and had worked closely with W.Q. Judge, Tingley's predecessor in the American Theosophical Society.
