VICTOR HENRY ANDERSON was born 21 May 1917 in Seneca, Union county, New Mexico.

Seneca is about 12 miles north of Clayton in Union county of New Mexico.  His father traveled to Clayton regularly for business, etc.


~ 1917

Seneca, New Mexico

From Cora Anderson’s book, In Mari’s Bower:

Page 3

"Victor Henry Anderson was born on May 21, 1917, in Clayton, New Mexico, in Green [sic now Union] County."

"Victor's father lived on a cattle ranch at the time, and his mother, Frances, cooked for the hands."

From all the newspaper entries of the time period and the World War I draft registration card concerning the father, Hilbart A. Anderson, it is apparent that Victor was born in Seneca, New Mexico which is near Clayton (see under Hilbart Alexander Anderson for details of those items).

~ ca. 1919

Seneca, New Mexico

From Cora Anderson’s book, In Mari’s Bower:

Page 3

"Tragically, when he (Victor) was about two years old, his sister accidentally dropped him on the basement floor."

"Three days passed until they noticed that Victor was blinded from the fall"

"She (the mother) took the train, with Victor in her lap, and went to Oklahoma to see this doctor"

Page 4

"When, she got home, her husband greeted her with such sorrow.  She asked, "What is the matter, Jack?  And then Jack [Victor's father] told her that while she was away her oldest son, Robert, have died in a fire.

They didn't know exactly happened, but Robert was in the barn and he started the fire with matches and was burned to death before he could get out."

"Victor's mother didn't want to live at the ranch much longer after Robert died."


~ 1920

Burkburnett, Texas

 In 1920, Victor and his brother and sisters were living with his parents in Burkburnett, Wichita county, Texas at the time when his sister, Elsie Glenan Anderson, was born.  She was born 2 February 1920.

His father, Hilbart, was a floor man oil worker.  Burkburnett, Texas was a place with a large oil field.  There were many oil rigs.

~ ca. 1923 - 1924 to ?

Albuquerque, New Mexico

From Cora Anderson’s book, In Mari’s Bower:

Page 4

"They moved to Albuquerque where Jack got a job fixing watches."

According to the Directory for 1923-1924, Victor was living with his parents at 1609 S Walter in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  His father, Hilbart, was listed as a mach. helper in Santa Fe.

From Cora Anderson’s book, In Mari’s Bower:

Page 4

"Just like at the ranch, Victor played with the Mexican children in Albuquerque, and he had a great deal of fun.

Page 4-5

"They used to trek out into the woods and the mountains.  There they saw many interesting things, and once found an altar that belonged to some of the indians.  It had many things on it, including gold.  His friends said "Let's take the gold," and Victor told them, "No, let's leave it where it is."  He persuaded them, and they left it."

Page 5

"His mother was always sad in Albuquerque...."

"she wanted to move, so Jack finally relocated the family back to his brother's place in Oklahoma.  Victor said that was the saddest day of his life.  He didn’t want to leave New Mexico because there were so many children that he loved to play with.”


~ ca. 1924 to 1928

Olustee, Oklahoma

From Cora Anderson’s book, In Mari’s Bower:

Page 6

"When they were in Oklahoma, the family had a phonograph, Victor learned how to operate it, and he played some of the music they had.  As the records played, Victor sang along in Hawaiian.

He was sounding just like a baby, and his mother said, "Oh, that's baby talk."  But his uncle disagreed, "No, it isn't," and went on to say, "I've been to Hawaii, and I know what they play.  He is saying Hawaiian words."  And ever since then Victor loved Hawaiian music."


~ ca. 1924 to 1928                                 


From Cora Anderson’s book, In Mari’s Bower:

Page 6

"Victor wasn’t very happy in Oklahoma, though after a few more months the family moved to Oregon.  First they stopped and picked strawberries.”

"In Ashland, Victor loved the trees, the bears (there were a lot of bears there) and nature.  His family raised fruit.  They just had a few trees, but they bore much fruits.  Victor seemed to be very satisfied there, and he made friends with many of the fruit pickers, some from Hawaii and Haiti, and learned more of their language."

Page 28

Q: Did he know any Hawaiians ?

A: In Medford, there used to be many that went up there and picked apples and pears.  He met a Hawaiian family there.

Page 41

Q: Did you know any gypsies?

A: Victor knew more than I did.  I didn't know many.  My grandmother was a gypsy, my mother's mother.  Her name was Rhoades.  I didn't know until I was about fourteen when my uncle told me.


~ ca. 1926

Victor's Awakening, the Spiritual Vision of his Initiation

From the book, Drawing Down the Moon, by Margot Adler:

"My interview with the poet and shaman Victor Anderson is a case in point.  This was among the most mysterious of my encounters.  His was the only story I heard that was clearly from the land of faery.  It was pure poetry.

Anderson, the author of a beautiful book of Craft poems, Thorns of the Blood Rose, told me of his meeting of a tiny old woman who said to him, at the age of nine, that he was a Witch.  He was living in Oregon when he came upon her sitting nude in the center of a circle alongside a number of brass bowls filled with herbs.  He said that he took off his clothes, knowing instinctively what to do, and was initiated "by full sexual rite."  He then told me of the vision he had in that circle.

She whispered the names of our tradition and everything vanished; it was all completely black.  There seemed to be nothing solid except this woman and I held on to her.  We seemed to be floating in space.  Then I heard a voice, a very distant voice saying 'Tana, Tana.'  It became louder and louder.  It was a very female voice, but it was as powerful as thunder and as hard as a diamond and yet very soft.

Then it came on very loud.  It said, 'I am Tana'.  Then suddenly, I could see there was a great sky overhead like a tropical sky, full of stars, glittering brilliant stars, and I could see perfectly in this vision, despite my blindness.  The moon was there but it was green.  Then I could hear the sounds of the jungle all around me.  I could smell the odors of the jungle.

Then I saw something else coming toward me out of the jungle.  A beautiful man.  There was something effeminate about him, and yet very powerful.  His phallus was quite erect.  He had horns and a blue flame came out of his head.  He came walking toward me, and so did she.  I realized without being told that this was the mighty Horned God.

But he was not her lord and master or anything like that, but her lover and consort.  She contained within herself all the principles and potencies in nature.

"There were other strange communications, and then the darkness disappeared.  We sat in the circle and she began to instruct me in the ritual use of each one of the herbs and teas in the circle.  Then I was washed in butter and oil and salt.  I put my clothes back on and made my way back to the house.  The next morning when I woke up, I knew it had really happened, but it seemed kind of a dream."

After the description of this vision had settled, I asked Anderson, "When did you decide to form a coven?"  And he replied, "It was when Gerald Gardner put out this book of his, Witchcraft Today.  I thought to myself, "Well, if that much is known.... it all fits together.' "


From Cora Anderson’s book, In Mari’s Bower:

Page 77

(In Victor's open letter to Aiden Kelly & Llewellyn Publications)

"I was initiated in 1926, not 1932, by a priestess from Africa."


From the Circus Historical Society website there is a very interesting query posted in 2004 on the Circus History Message & Discussion Board of that site.  A query by a Cornelia Benavidez who knew Victor Anderson personally.  The comment shed some more light on the lady that Victor was initiated by.

From the webpage:

"339. Performers from South Africa, November 27, 2004 - An old friend of mine passed away. Victor Anderson was full of stories and a very interesting person. He was born in New Mexico in 1917 and later grew up in Oregon in the 30's. He was small person partly blind. He says that he became friends with a woman in the circus who was a fire dancer and when she got older worked the stands.

She somehow joined the circus in South Africa and made her way to the US. When he first met her she was 60 years old and he was a nine year old boy. He knew her for 15 years and later he played the accordian and was a band leader for some circus himself for a while

Though it would be quite something to find out who this woman was, it would also just be interesting to find out about people coming from so far away to join the circus and travel to America especially a small women in 1926 who had been doing it for years before that. Any ideas where I could look for more information? Thank you, Cornelia Benavidez, CA,"


~ The traveling Circus and the Africans

The circuses were found to be making it runs through the towns of southwestern Oregon during the 1920's to the 1930's.

In those days there were not much entertainments in the day to day ordinary hard life that the people went through.  So there was always these excitement in the air when the circus arrive in the towns.  Especially when the train arrives in town.

People from small towns for miles around would jump into their cars and trucks to visit the circus.

Victor Anderson as a child and teenager lived in Ashland and nearby areas.  Medford and Klamath Falls are nearby.  It is more than likely his parents would take their children to the circus whenever they came nearby.

Of the circus review and schedules that are available online, the following circuses came through southwestern Oregon.



Al G. Barnes Circus Route 1926

May 10 --- Klamath Falls, Oregon
May 12 --- Medford, Oregon


Al G. Barnes Circus Route 1927

May 16 --- Klamath Falls, Oregon

Note:  Monday, May 16, 1927 was the night of the full moon.



Al G. Barnes Circus Route 1928

May 14 --- Klamath Falls, Oregon



Christy Bros. Big Five Ring Wild Animal Circus, 1928

August 18 --- Medford, Oregon



Christy Bros. Big Five Ring Wild Animal Circus, 1929

May 13 --- Klamath Falls, Oregon



Cole Bros. Circus Route 1930

May 15 --- Ashland, Oregon


Most of the performers are not listed in these reviews, only some of the main people are listed.  Also outside these circus tents would be more individual sideshow performers doing their thing in front of the moving crowd.   Other people operating small magic shows or games.

There were African Americans and native Africans that were in working in these circuses some were working as maintaining the grounds etc.  Others were performers.  The native Africans were mainly performers.

Among these people there were probably a few of them that knew Voodoo and some other spiritual craft among the African natives.

As I mentioned before that the circus review and route guides don't list all the performers but some of the photographs and advertisements shows some of these African Americans and African natives.

But noticed this in one of the reviews:

~ More about the Feri, Voodoo, and Kuana aspects.


The following from the 1930 Review of Al G. Barnes Circus is interesting.  One of the shows that they had was about a Fairy Queen and a Magician.

From the Al G. Barnes Daily Review of Season 1930:

Page Five

The Added Features

"Persia" and the "Pageant of Pekin"

Two Gorgeous Spectacles of Oriental Magnificence

Persia with all its mystery enshrouded with glitter of pageantry and beauty unfolds a fantastic story, ages old.  From the dark archives of its musty history come the tale of Magic.  The Fairy Queen comes to the rescue of the love-lorn maiden, beset with trials and troubles by a weird Magician, seeking to destroy her happiness.

An Allegorical settings portrays Persia with all its beauty and splendor."


Victor Anderson was involved with the Feri, Voodoo and Hawaiian Kahuna and learned them.

From Cora Anderson’s book, In Mari’s Bower:

Page 78

(In Victor's open letter to Aiden Kelly & Llewellyn Publications)

"I am a Kahuna.  This is a fact of my racial heritage, personal experience and training.  The word Kahuna means "the secret," and the same in the fairy tradition and the Polynesian religion and magic."


From Cora Anderson's book, Fifty Years in the Feri Tradition:

Page 4

"Victor has always been loved by people of many races...."

"The Feri Tradition... Victor was already involved in establishing the craft before Gwydion started studying with him."

"Before the tradition was called Feri, it was known as Vicia..."

Page 4 & 5

"Among Italian witches the tradition was and is still clled La Vecchia Religiore ..."

Page 21

"Due to the very nature of his racial and karmic heritage and the nature of the Feri Tradition, Victor is also a priest of Voudou."

"However, it is stupid to get hung up on labels.  There are as many names for the Craft as there are human languages.”


From Cora Anderson’s book, In Mari’s Bower:

Page 58

Q: Victor said he was a Kahuna, a Bokor, and a Houngan (an initiated Voudou priest).

A: Well I know he was that.

Q: Did that happened when he was a boy?

A: Well it did before we were married....

Q: Victor always said he was more aligned with Vodou and the Kahuna.

A: Well, he was those two together.

Q: He would open the ritual by calling Papa Legba.  He always did that.

A: Well, yeah, thats true.

Q: And that's something that's very different than Wicca.

A: Oh, yeah.

Q: In Gwydion's writings also, he mentions that anytime they did a ritual, Victor would call Legba.

A: He did, I know that, because I was there...


~ 1928

From the obituary of Victor's grandfather, Nathan S. Anderson, dated 28 August 1928 it is known that Hilbart Anderson and his family were living in Pinehurst, Oregon.

The family probably arrived a few years before 1928 but this is the earliest record of them being in Oregon that is found currently (See under Nathan S. Anderson for details of the obituary).

From Cora Anderson's book, Fifty Years in the Feri Tradition:

"I am a Kahuna.  This is a fact of my racial heritage, personal experience and training.  The word Kahuna means "the secret," and the same in the fairy tradition and the Polynesian religion and magic."

With special thank you to Sara Star who first mentioned to me about Victor H. Anderson and then I became interested in researching his life.  Sara sent me a book about him and she found several sources of information about the circus coming to southwestern Oregon in the 1920's to 1930's and other interesting information that she will write about soon.
