Briggs at Washington, D.C., and later re-incorporated in 1929 at Indianapolis, Indiana, which offered to correspondence students a course and accompanying doctorate in Occult Science, "and other Special Courses with certificate for the Special Course."[1] Students of the college included the likes of C.
