George Adams (1894-1963), was born in Poland and received an honors
degree in Chemistry from Cambridge University, and came into contact with
Rudolf Steiner's work while a student there. He was active as a pacifist
during the First World War, and did social work with the Quakers, in
particular with the Friends' War Relief organisation in Poland. He worked
for the rest of his life for Anthroposophy with a special interest in the
scientific side, as well as developing Anthroposophical social aspects.
George was an avid student of Rudolf Steiner, and translated many of
Steiner's lectures that were given to English-speaking audiences. Being
a Jew, when Hitler rose t power he changed his name from Kaufmann to Adams
and left Germany for England where he continued his anthroposophic activities
and scientific research.
In 1935, Olive Whicher joined Adams in London and worked with him in research
into mathematics and physics until his death in 1963. He discovered how to
describe Steiner's findings about negative space in geometric terms, and was
particularly adept with projective geometry and the application of path curves.
He translated and published numerous books, lectures, and articles.
