Beau, Academcs, and Dead Ends. Or were they?


Once upon a time, I had, in my files, a bulletin from some small college saying that A. L. Kitselman, Jr. had earned the "Goat" award in one of his classes. I have always liked to imagine what he might have done to be graced with such a title..

Beyond that, I have found only a couple of mentions of Beau, in any quasi-academic context at all. I know that a 10-room, 3100 sq. ft. house, with a 650 sq.' garage, located at 774 Ynez St., next door to the Stanford faculty club,  was rented by "A. L. Kitselman Jr. and students" 

And we have Beau's statement in Hello, Stupid, saying that his "calculus students" at Pearl Harbor were the ones who built the working gravitor for Townsend's 1951 demonstration.

The Brown's were living in Honolulu then, but the family had spent the previous two years leading a rustic life in a remote valley on Kauai.  They had gone to the Island in 1947 so that Townsend could check out Barber's Point.  My "working hippopotomus," given his background, time and place, is that Townsend was instrumental in developing the network of radar systems that would transform the Point into the Navy's eye's and ears on the Pacific.  I think that once this was underway,  Beau came along to help educate a select user group on the intricacies of this new system.  

This is what I know of him in that timeframe.
  1. In 1933 he had discovered in himself some psi abilities and spent years in search of a way to contact the source of that prescience.  
  2. He was a teacher at some level, who had once had some quasi-offial relationship with Stanford University.
  3. He had spent several years reading ancient manuscripts, some in the original Sanskrit. He was familiar with Hindu terminology and would later adapt their philosophy as his 'nesting worlds' theory
  4. His best friend was the premier radar man in the United States.
For those reasons, I was, for a while, certain that he had authored this July 8, 1947 memo, available as page 22 from the FBI Vault here.   This particular document claiming knowledge of Interdimensinal Aliens, has been an off and on topic of dicussion at ATS, here and here.

I had locked on to the author's claim that the visitors came from the Lokas or Talas regions, but forgotten how prevalent Theosophy was on the West Coast in those years. The editorial source was Meade Layne, Ph. D. whose Flying Rolls and Round Robin were mimeographed esoteric newsletters, published by his Borderland Sciences Research Institute. It appears that his paranormal UFO information was provided by a San Diego channel medium* with a least one control who knew of the Talas and Lokas.

So I am no longer interested in that memo in regards to Beau. However it seems to have been ressurrected, now for some other purpose. I will have more to say about that tomorrow.

*Mark Probert  was a "channeller of the Inner Circle (or Kethra E Da, as it is called in the Yuga language of E Yada Di Shi'ite). Records of Probert's seances were put to paper by Meade Layne and circulated as part of the BSRA's "Round Robin", forming the core of the earliest research into the Ether Ship Mystery."*
