Harvey Spencer Lewis F.R.C., S.·.I.·., 33°66°95°, Ph.D. (November 25, 1883 - August 2, 1939), a famous Rosicrucian mysticist, was the founder and the first Imperator of the current cycle of AMORC, from 1915 until 1939.


H. Spencer Lewis, although born in Frenchtown, New Jersey, USA, had Welsh roots.

The second AMORC Imperator was his son, Ralph Maxwell Lewis, who also wrote a biography for him titled Cosmic Mission Fulfilled (ISBN 0912057904 for paperback, ISBN 091205722X for hardcover).

He was also one of the three Imperators of FUDOSI and his nomen mysticum was Sar Alden.

Before becoming the first Imperator of AMORC, H. Spencer Lewis was a businessman.

His wife was Martha. They were married at least from 1937. Martha travelled with Lewis at Egypt during the AMORC Grand Tour of Egypt (see Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum and [1]).

He also founded the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum.

In the past Harvey Spencer Lewis had a radio station broadcasting from the Rosicrucian Park, and he was also speaking at other radio stations.


According to Michael Nowicki's (F.R.C.) Rocrucians Salon WebSite, and especially its Mysterious Inventions of Dr. Lewis page, H. Spencer Lewis built several scientific organs.

They include:


The Luxatone or Color Organ was a device which converted audio signals into colours, displayed on a triangular screen.

Dr. Lewis used Luxatone to demonstrate mystical and philosophical ideas.

The audio signal was inputted with the aim of a microphone.

A booklet titled "The Story of Luxatone - The Master Color Organ" was printed and sent to AMORC members and to newspapers.

Cosmic Ray Coincidence Counter

According Michael Nowicki, F.R.C., this device was a prototype of a Geiger counter.

It was built in 1930s and it was able to track radioactivity.

Sympathetic Vibration Harp

As Mr. Nowicki, F.R.C., says, the Sympathetic Vibration Harp was built by Dr. Lewis to demonstrate the AMORC's principle of sympathetic vibration.
