British journalist, editor and author. He was the editor of the Hong-Kong "Daily Press" at the age of 25 and editor of "The Pioneer" in India in 1872. Sinnett and his wife were eager spiritualists, avid for séances and manifestations. In December 1879 they were visited by H.P. Blavatsky at their home in Simla and became strong friends with HPB, corresponding steadily for the next decade. They joined Theosophy at that time and became active in the movement from 1881. He was the author of "The Occult World" and "Esoteric Buddhism." He and his wife had one son. He died June 26, 1921, age 81.

Modern Astrology 8/1921, not stated as such but almost certainly from the acquaintance of Alan and Bessie Leo, fellow Theosophists.
