Alan Watts and his Early Years:
Philosopher and Elite Academic "Alan Watts" was born in London in 1915 at the start of the first World War. He became fascinated with the Far East, and at fourteen he began to write, and was published in the Journal of the London Buddhist Lodge. He moved to New York in 1938 and then to Chicago, where he served as an Episcopal priest for six years. In 1950, he moved New York before going on to San Francisco to teach at the Academy of Asian Studies. Among Alan Watts' earliest influences were the novelist Sax Rohmer and Zen scholars D.T. Suzuki and Christmas Humphreys. In late 1950, he visited with Joseph Campbell and composer John Cage in NYC.
