Mrs. Holloway and the Mahatmas was researched and compiled by Daniel H. Caldwell, and published by The Blavatsky Study Center in 2012. It is comprised of articles written by Laura C. Holloway, and letters to and about her from H. P. Blavatsky, Master K.H., and Master M.

Newly discovered letters

Sixteen of the 44 letters were previously unpublished in book form. Color images of these letters were printed with permission from the Joseph Downs Collection of Manuscripts and Printed Ephemera, Winterthur Library, Winterthur, Delaware.[1] Mr. Caldwell wrote in his introduction to the book:

Research in 2004-2005 led me to the discovery of thirteen original letters from the Mahatmas Koot Hoomi and Morya] as well as three original letters from Madame Blavatsky. These sixteen original letters are preserved among the papers of Mrs. Holloway at the Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library in Delaware (US) [http:www.winterthur.org'.[2]

Articles by Laura C. Holloway

Several articles that Mrs. Holloway wrote for the popular press reflect on her experiences with Theosophy and the Masters are presented in Mrs. Holloway and the Mahatmas. Links are provided to these articles where posted in the Blavatsky Archives website.
