Walther Cloos

Walther Cloos (1900–1985) grew up in Darmstadt. He studied pharmacy at Stuttgart Technical University, where he also attended lectures on mineralogy and geology, doing his practical training and working as an assistant in pharmacies in the Spessart region, near Hamburg and in the southern Black Forest. Having heard Rudolf Steiner at the independent academic course in Stuttgart in March 1921, he attended a second course held in Darmstadt in July that year. Later he would say that he had not been as impressed by Rudolf Steiner as others were, and that it was only the study of Steiner’s written works that he came to appreciate him. Cloos took great interest in the plant world, and especially in the medicinal plants he was growing himself at Weleda Schwaebisch Gmuend. He also closely studied alchemical writings.
