Hughes - Keely Connection

What was their relationship? Many of the original articles are on the svpwiki already. As for who did what when a good source is the “Chronology” and “Keely Chronology” pages within the svpwiki. I began the Keely Chronology as a way to focus specifically on him because the Chronology page was getting large and detailed. The two pages should be studied together. I do not remember how much was transferred from the Chronology page to Keely Chronology page. Also there is a partial list of articles Bloomfield-Moore wrote on her bio page. She mentions Hughes quite often in her writings. These should be the original texts and you can see they have basically the same title or name as the chapters in her book.

"You can even trace the poles in sound," writes Mrs. F. J. Hughes, in her work upon the "Harmonies of Tones and Colours - Developed by Evolution."

A compilation of MacVicar's "Sketch of a Philosophy" (published in 1868) together with Mrs. Hughes' book on evolution of tones and colors, was sent to Keely. [JOHN ERNST WORRELL KEELY]

It was not until Macvicar's "A Sketch of a Philosophy" fell in his way, and "Harmonies of Tones and Colours - Developed by Evolution," written-by Mrs. F. J. Hughes, a niece of Darwin, that he turned his attention to the structure of ether and learned that "the same laws which develop harmonies develop the universe." [Keelys Discoveries]

Macvicar's work on the properties of ether first turned Mr. Keely's attention to the structure of ether, and Mrs. Hughes book on "Harmonies of Tones and Colours - Developed by Evolution" (not Mrs. Watts-Hughes, but a niece of Darwin, of Bedwyn Lodge, Sandown, Isle of Right) convinced him that the same laws which develop harmonies develop the universe. [Keelys Discoveries]

I would like to have you make known in England that Mr. Keely is indebted to Macvicar's "A Sketch of a Philosophy" for turning his attention in 1884, to researches on the structure of ether, and to Mrs. F. J. Hughes, a niece of Darwin (not Mrs. Watts-Hughes), for the suggestions in her work on "Harmonies of Tones and Colours - Developed by Evolution", which led him into the line of experiment that now enables him to show on a disc the various colours of sound (each note having its colour), and to demonstrate in various ways Mrs. Hughes own words "that the same laws which develop harmonies develop the universe." [Keelys Discoveries]

A couple of years ago I was contacted by a lady from the Moore College of Art and Design in Philadelphia. She was researching Bloomfield-Moore for some purpose. That contact information is on the other computer which will not start.

Clara Bloomfield-Moore - wikipedia

I have more materials on her within the archives. Some materials are just notes. Who has the time to go through all that?

I have since the 1980s used a text searchable database program to log my research. This allows me to find notes or materials in a few seconds. Much of that database has been converted to pdf files which can also be word searched. I’m attaching the pdf of “Keely and His Discoveries” that you can word search and find all the occurrences of the term “Hughes” (for instance) which are of course references to her and her book. This book has been entered into the svpwiki.com HERE and can be accessed and searched. Some of those links on that page are original unedited articles while some are not. I did not note which are which.

Another list of original articles that may be of interest.
