After traveling for several years during the 1940s as a circus juggler, he became an early editor of JUBILEE, a lay Catholic magazine, in 1953, and produced 18 issues of PAX from 1956 to 1962, when he left the U.S. and permanently settled on the island of Patmos as a hermit. The present issue features cover art by Reinhardt and the poems, "Death of a the Hermit," by Richard Gilman, "Poem," by E. E. Cummings, and "The Brass-Clad Legions," by Claire McAllister. Scarce.
