Early Life and Education
George Crowley’s outlandish lifestyle, demonic magic and homosexuality made him a controversial figure. He accepted rumors of child murder and Satanism, founded an organization which opposed dominant religions like Christianity and even wrote fiction about supernatural demons.
Despite these controversy, he became one of the most influential writers in the occult world. He penned numerous works such as The Book of the Dead and Satanic Bible.
He wrote poetry and some famous novels, was an accomplished poet, and amassed an extensive library. Additionally, he published a tarot card deck and demonstrated magic skills with ease. His works became widely read throughout Thelema – a secret society founded by Crowley that continues to this day – with many practitioners following in his footsteps.
Crowley had a brief professional baseball career in 1973 when the Baltimore Orioles selected him to be their designated hitter. He played an integral part in their first-ever World Series victory versus the Pittsburgh Pirates.
He began his career as a minor league hitting instructor for the Baltimore Orioles in 1984, and later joined the Boston Red Sox organization as well.
He earned a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from Purdue University (1954) and served two years in the United States Army. Since then he has been active in numerous civic and professional organizations, serving 15 years on the Edina School Board, 8 years as RCM Director for Minneapolis Family & Children’s Service Board, Colonial Church Trustee & Council Member as well as being part of Edina 2nd Century Commission volunteer service.

In the late 19th century, he developed an interest in occultism and joined The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn–an organization descended from Rosicrucians. On a trip to Egypt in 1904, he reported mystical experiences which spurred him on to write The Book of the Law.

Despite his considerable wealth, he could never keep his personal life private. He was frequently photographed with prostitutes.
He had many friends and relatives who did not support his marriage to Crowley. Some even staged a multi-day intervention to persuade him that it was an error.
