He had a Doctorate in Literature, was a 33rd Degree Mason and an occultist all of his life. His library had in excess of 50,000 books, manuscripts and artifacts, and Hall was a specialist in Oriental studies.
He was physically and mentally an immense man, exceptionally well-read, with a remarkable memory and speaking ability. Hall died on 29 August 1990 in Hollywood, California at age 89.
The Philosophical Research Society on Los Feliz, Hollywood has narrow library times, but one can travel to the "Philosophical Library" in Escondido, California, which had many of Hall's books on its shelves, including an oversized edition of An Encyclopedic Outline of Masonic, Hermetic, Qabbalistic, & Rosicrucian Symbolical Philosophy, not to mention hundreds of astrology books, and thousands of occult books.
