F. Pierce Spinks, a member of the Theosophical Society in America, was an advocate of the Fraternization Movement and author of Theosophists Reunite! An Eloquent Plea For A Reunited Society in 1958. His book was translated into several languages. He was born on August 5, 1901 and died on October 17, 1979. He worked as a bookkeeper in California.

Dora Kunz wrote of Mr. Spinks:

F. Pierce Spinks, a well-known member of the Theosophical Society in America died on Wednesday, October 17, 1979. He had a dream that all theosophical organizations would one day unite and make one strong world movement, and for thirty years he published a journal called Theosophists Reunite! He dedicated many years of his life to this project and became known all over the world.

Mr. Spinks was truly a philanthrophist in every sense of the word. He raised two children of members of the Theosophical Society in Cuba and he also gave refuge in his home to a Vietnamese family and helped them in every possible way. He was a most kind and friendly man.

In many ways his dream has been partially realized. At the [1975] Centennial World Congress in New York City, many other groups involved in the theosophical movement participated in the programs. Surely his undeviated devotion to this cause has helped to make it happen. It seems the different groups are becoming and will, with every year, continue to become more sensitive to one another, and friendlier feelings have already developed. Pierce Spinks was a true theosophist and showed this in his kindness to many.[1]

The Union Index of Theosophical Periodicals lists nine articles by or about Mr. Spinks.
