Distinguished Speaker: Marion Weil HVS ’60

During Wednesday’s assembly, Marion “Ruth” Weil, HVS Class of 1960, gave a presentation as part of our Distinguished Speakers Series. She spoke about Annie Besant’s life, connection to Theosophy, J. Krishnamurdi, her connection to Ojai, and the formation of Happy Valley School, now Besant Hill School of Happy Valley.

The presentation included clips from an online documentary on Annie Besant’s life.

I would say to those of you who are young today: look forward to a future full of nobler tasks that you may do what we have left undone. Never forget that life can only be nobly inspired and rightly lived if you take it bravely and gallantly as a splendid adventure.
