Craig Smith: How I Became an Oxfordian

It was the first showing of PBS Frontline; “The Shakespeare Mystery” in 1989. I was living in Santa Cruz, California, it was just after the 1989 Earthquake and this was like an ‘earthquake’ in my mind! I felt immediately and completely convinced . . . little did I know then, what an important part of my life Oxford would become.

I joined the Horatio Society in San Francisco in 1992. I’ve become friends with Katherine Chiljan, Charles Beauclerk and other leaders of the movement.

I read Charlton Ogburn’s The Mysterious William Shakespeare and the book by Dorothy and Charlton Ogburn, This Star of England . . . and almost every book since then.

I’ve always been interested in the works; but since knowing the truth, everything has changed and the world is a more just and enlightened one.
