Contributor Bio: Mulford, Prentice
Prentice Mulford was born in Sag Harbor New York in 1834, and at the age of 22, traveled west to the California gold fields to seek his fortune. He found no fortune in gold, but found fame writing under the pseudonym of Dogberry for many of the newspapers and magazines of Northern California. He was a fixture of the early San Francisco Bohemian literary scene of the 1860s, along with Mark Twain and Brett Harte. Always described as rather odd and other worldly, Prentice Mulford believed in, and practiced the arts of mental telepathy and prophesy; he predicted the airplane, and his holistic views of nature and ecology, and his appreciation and respect for women and those of other races are now a part of the fabric of our culture. In 1865, Mulfords interest in spirituality became the center of his life, and he moved onto an old whaling vessel sailing about the San Francisco bay, undoubtedly to find peace on the water, under the sun and stars, away from the maddening crowds of the city. After a trip abroad, he sailed and settled in the swamps around Passaic NJ, where he lived the life of a hermit, writing some of his finest and most influential works. At age 57, he decided to return to Sag Harbor. He died en route, peacefully leaving his body without any apparent illness or pain. He left behind him the legacy of the New Thought movement, and although few are familiar with his work today, his ideas, ideals and prophesies have profoundly influenced our society spiritually and morally, lifting our minds, and our laws, to become more humane and enlightened.
