Clearing up a rumor about Barbara Walker

Thread originally posted on the Aeclectic Tarot Forum on 25 Mar 2004, and now archived in the Forum Library.

I heard a rumor that Babara Walker is Lady Freida Harris's great-granddaughter? I couldn't find anything on the net to support this, so I thought somebody here might have an idea. Is this true?
:confused: I feel kind of stupid asking this, but still...

Who's Barbara Walker? XTAX

She's the maker of the "Barbara Walker Tarot". You can see it here:

Oh, I see...sounds like a bit of an urban myth to me, but then again I could be wrong! XTAX

The little that I know is she was actually separated or divorced from her husband at the time of the second world war and she was elderly, not in love with Crowley when she paid him to look at her paintings. The stipend she paid Crowley helped him stay comfortable at his rented lodgings during his last year. I've never heard references to brothers or sisters or family in the small biographies of Harris.

Lon Duquette said it is correct to say Lady Harris, actually, but not Lady Frieda, as she married into 'royalty' but was not the daughter of a Duke/Earl...(please correct me if I am wrong).

If I come across biographical information of Barbara Walker, I'll post.

I have a feeling that if Walker was a relation she would have plugged it for the deck! Well i can see it from a publishing point of view, not hers wanting more money - u know what i mean??
I've never heard of them being related.

I am actually the bastard love-child of Harris and Crowley.

Would anyone like to pay me for my biography?

;) Ha!

PS. A joke. Crowley and Harris had a non-sexual relationship, as far as I am aware. Also, i'm 26, so kind of impossible!

Well , we are talking about Crowley here - nothing was impossible for that man if rumour is to be believed!!

That makes total sense. He was 'the Beast' and she was 'the Lady' so you must be the reborn immortal offspring of all those Greco-Roman friezes of man and beasts.

And as to your age in this life, you could always make it up. In human years, yeah, you are 26, but in Centurian Years, maybe you are just a young foal.

Say hi to your Dad and please ask if he speaks to Mr. Lon Milo Duquette in dreams.

Cheers and April foolry,
