Oderberg, I. M.

Longtime Sunrise contributor Israel Manuel Oderberg died September 18, 2002. He was born November 30, 1912, in London, England, shortly before his family moved to Melbourne, Australia. By his midteens he had developed a serious interest in ancient Egypt and, skipping an afterschool activity to play truant at the public library, he discovered H. P. Blavatsky's Isis Unveiled. At 18 he joined the Theosophical Society, but resigned at his parents' insistence, to rejoin when he turned 21. In 1930 he entered the University of Melbourne, studying pharmacy before taking an honors course in philosophy. Employed as a pharmacist until World War II, he served in the armed forces in the signal corps. After the war he became a journalist with the Australian Jewish News, and by the early 1950s was its editor. Heavily involved in theosophical work in Australia, he visited the theosophical headquarters in 1962 and was invited to join the staff. He donated most of his large collection of books to the headquarters, and when the Theosophical Library Center opened to the public in 1972, he was appointed Research Librarian, a post he held until the mid-1990s. Manuel will be remembered not only for his encyclopedic knowledge, but for his warmth of heart, playful sense of humor, love of discussion, boundless curiosity, and youthful spirit. — Eds.
