Seth Pancoast (July 28, 1823 - December 16, 1889) was an American homeopathic physician, chromopathist, and occultist, a founding member of the Theosophical Society noted for his authorship of an early English language book on the Kabbala.[1] Pancoast was involved in search efforts for the sunken British sloop of war De Braak (HMS Braak) in 1877, founding the International Submarine Company and mounting a failed two-month attempt to uncover the wreck and the treasures it was-then thought to contain.[2]
