Borderland: Letters on Murray Denning
LETTER ABOUT MURRAY DENNING
from Annice Denning
26 Wey Lane
March 14, 1989
Thank you very much for your letter of 2nd March requesting
further details of Murray's life. I am listing below some
facts for you to include in a write up as you suggest and am
delighted to think you are so doing. If I repeat anything
already known, please forgive me.
a) He was born in 1903 in Epping just outside London.
b) His father was a General Medical Practioner, and his
family-tree shows a long line of apothecaries and doctors
going back into Irish history to the Battle of Boyne. His
Mother was Scottish.
c) He was educated at a public school at Tonbridge in Kent,
where he excelled in sports (r ). d , and his hands,
the best of his talents on a physical level - first
carpentry and woodwork and later healing first showed.
d) Sp......... Nervous Spine, cured when he was 45, spoiled
his early years--though he became an Insurance Agent to earn
e) After his cure (described in Truths), his Hand-Healing
led him to investigation and to Ruth Drownism.
f) He joined the Radionic Assoc., G. Britain in 1956.
Served for a short period on the council, where he advocated
basic medical training as essential and undertook a journey
via Los Angeles to Australia and New Zealand. In Los
Angeles he met Ruth Drown, the teacher of his own teacher,
Mrs. Mary Leigh, and correponded once or twice with her
before her tragic death.
g) Following his own advice he took a Physio Therapy Course
in which I joined him and commenced in his sixties to study
Eastern philosophies and Esoteric teachings. The latter he
was still doing right up to his death.
h) He sought a link between physical and spiritual psychic
healing all the time, and even before he died, was planning
new ways of research, particularly with reference to Dr.
Drown's photographic diagnosis.
i) When the B. Rad. Assoc. took on the Pendulum Technique
diagnosing, he felt strongly they had lost sight of Basic
Principles and training their students, and devoted his
latter years to promoting Drown's ideas, and trying to turn
the thinking of the people over here back to a restatement
and awareness of her work. (In other words, he felt they
had gone off the rails of genuine progress, and needed
reminding) To some extent he has been successful.
j) He and I were married in 1956--and I have always been
intensly interested in his work and supported him in every
way I could. We had one daughter, now married with 2
children, and he also had a son and daughter by previous
marriages, and was a Great Grandfather when he died.
Is this sufficient? Maybe too much - you will use what
seems right to you.
Thank you for the assurance about further royalty d . I
shall be most interested to hear how your own plans procced.
Good luck finding a suitable business manager.
With best wishes,
26 Wey Lane
I've been trying to figure how best to run the
information in your letter and thought that it would be best
to run excerpts from it in our letters page, with further
comments. Murray had a most interesting life and I find
that I agree with his general attitude.
You mention that he was in disfavor of the teaching of
pendulum technique for radionic analysis. I feel that the
pendulum is important, mainly due to its de facto presence,
but that the true radionic action comes from the contact
through the rubbing plate. I would have to concur with his
feelings and I suspect that Murray was treated as somewhat
of an outsider for his championship of Dr. Drown's
methodology in the British radionic climate. We dropped
Tansley's books from our catalog when I found reference in
one of his books unfavorable to Murray and Trevor Constable.
Perhaps Murray would have concurred with my views that
the US radionic climate is completely distorted these days
with "psycho-tronic" explanations, which imply that the
entire process takes place in the mind, with the physical
instrument merely a focus. Murray's work toward an
automatic radionic instrument shows that he had a clear
grounding in the true realities of the art. One of our
correspondents put together about 80 pages on the theory of
automatic radionic instruments. He draws heavily on
Murray's views presented in "Truths" and we are publishing
it as a research brochure. I will send a copy along to you
when we get it printed.
Murray's advocating basic medical training for
radionicists seems so common sense one would wonder why his
ideas weren't paid more attention to.
