American writer. He first encountered spiritual teacher George Gurdjieff at the age of 11. He arrived at the Gurdjieff institute at Château du Prieuré in Avon, France, under the care of his mother's sister, Margaret Anderson, where he took on the role of Gurdjieff's personal assistant and errand-boy, also receiving an hour of personal tuition each week. Peters returned to the USA, but was to have a string of meetings with Gurdjieff in subsequent years. He wrote a reminiscence of his time with Gurdjieff (as well as the novel Finistere), but was never a central figure in the US Work groups. He died on December 19, 1979.

Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "Balanced man: a look at Gurdjieff fifty years later‎" by Fritz Peters (Wildwood House, 1978), p. 52: "According to the parental folklore that has been passed on to me, I was born in Madison, Wisconsin, on Sunday, March 2, 1913 at 4:12 pm (the hour is not folklore; it's on my birth certificate)."
