Co-founder and Co-messenger with Madam H.P.Blavatsky of the Theosophical Movement of the Modern era launched on Nov. 17th, 1875. He was born in Dublin, Ireland, on April 13th, 1851, and he migrated to USA in 1864.
He met H.P. Blavatsky in 1874 in New York, and became her student and co-worker. When Madam H.P. Blavatsky and Col. H.S. Olcott, the president of the Theosophical Society, sailed to India in 1879, Mr. Judge was left almost alone in the America to sustain the Theosophical Society from the seeds which had just been sown.
One will be able to grasp the wisdom and extraordinary ability that were Mr. Judge’s as one surveys the building of the Theosophical Society in America from its small beginnings to a major and flourishing movement, spread far and wide across the country. The Theosophical Movement in America, today, owes its existence and influence to him.
The Masters of Wisdom, who are the real founders of the Theosophical Movement, gave evidence that he was one of their accredited co-messengers along with Madame H.P.Blavatsky, for the repromulgation of the Archaic Wisdom-religion, now named Theosophy. Though stricken with Chagres fever, a fatal and very painful disease, he worked unremittingly for the spread of the Theosophical Movement. Working to the last, in constant pain, he died on March 21st (the vernal equinox), 1896. He was 45 years old when he died.
