L. Francis Edmunds

L. Francis Edmunds began his studies as a medical student, but the driving force in his life was a quest for insight into the nature of the human being. This journey led him to anthroposophy and his vocation as a teacher. In 1962 he founded Emerson College, an adult educational establishment based on Rudolf Steiner’s work. He traveled and lectured extensively around the world, and authored the perennially popular Introduction to Steiner Education. Francis Edmunds died in 1989.
