Since no one else is answering your question. When Tingly organized the
Theosophical community and school at Point Loma around 1900, all
residents, students and cabinet members were required to wear uniforms.
The students were also required to practice marching drills participate
in plays and take up practice on a musical instrument. In those days,
it was very common for private schools to require everyone to wear a
uniform of some kind. I believe this uniform requirement was dropped
after Purucker took over in 1930. Hope this helps.
Several weeks ago after you posted links to the Stokes material I posted
the question about the Photographs of the Tingly Lodge, specifically the group
Photo where I observed 26 of the male members all wearing a "Uniform" and
asked what is this Uniform? Do you know? I have seen no answer from anyone on this
question and do not know if it is because no one cares to answer or if it is
because no one knows why they are wearing a Uniform, can you or any other
historian tell me?
