Ethel P. Hill was born Ethel Mabel Perkins in Illinois 24 June 1875 to an Englishman Mr. Perkins and Evelyn M. ‘Eva’ Finch. Mr. Perkins died when Ethel was a girl.

About 1895 she married Methodist minister Rev. James B. Crippen of Coldwater, MI. He was the cousin of future notorious wife murderer Dr. Hawley H. Crippen. By 1900 they had two children, a son and daughter, both born in the vicinity of Tampa, FL. Shortly after, say 1902, Ethel divorced Rev. Crippen and moved with her children and widowed mother to Los Angeles, CA.

By 1910, working for a retail clothing chain, Ethel was possibly the first female advertising department manager in California. Within the year she would marry Omar G. Hill from Iowa. O.G. worked in Hollywood as a cinematographer and is credited with several silent films during the teens and 20s.

In 1926 Ethel received the manuscript for ‘What Next?’ through automatic writing from a spirit identified only as ‘C.N.’ While professing no earlier interest in matters related to spiritualism, the story came to the attention of metaphysician Charles W. Callaway, advisor to the School of Knowledge in San Jose. The book was issued by his associate B.F. Austin through the Cosmos Publishing Company of San Jose and Los Angeles. The book went into several printings and is readily available in used copies from this period, suggesting that it had considerable circulation.

She remained in Los Angeles, likely until the death of her husband Mr. Hill in 1950.

While no documentation for the period between 1930 and 1950 is available, it is clear that she cultivated contacts in occult circles. In 1932 for instance ‘What Next?’ was recommended for additional reading by Edna S. Griffith, corresponding on behalf of William Dudley Pelley’s League for the Liberation.

Dr. Frank W. Sumner had also worked with Pelley at that time and in later years he would compile and write the foreword to another collection of messages from ‘C.N.’ under the title “The Coming Golden Age,” 1957.

It was this later phase of messages from C.N. which introduced Mrs. Hill to the world of UFO contactees. One of the early C.N. saucer messages states:

“On the first of October, 1950, we received an invitation to visit the planet Venus and, as this spells "home" to some of us, we gladly accepted the invitation and made a flying trip to see what our good friends on Venus had on their minds.”

The earliest copy of this message available is dated Feb. 1955, but if an earlier copy does exist, as suggested, Oct 1950 would certainly make it an early example of extraterrestrial contact through a human spirit.

About 1950 Ethel moved to Colville, WA and lived with Dr. Dwight and Mrs. Marguriette Clarke. They had also been supporters of Pelley since the 1930s.

She remained with them until at least 1956. During this period, though nearly 80 years old, Mrs. Hill produced a voluminous collection of mimeographed letters bearing on spirit and saucer communication. She also corresponded with likely dozens of persons, including a number of prison inmates.

She also submitted her writings to William Kullgren of Atascadero, CA who issued at least one collection of C.N. messages under the title The Divine Dynamo, 1951. Other Kullgren publications featured channeled messages from the space men and it is supposed that Mrs. Hill contributed or had some influence in this.

Her most notable later work was the issue of messages received through automatic writing from “Ashtar -speaking for a mighty army of Space Men now in active service.”

The first volume of these messages, first circulated in 1954 and titled “In Days to Come,” was published by Franklin and Dorothy Thomas through their New Age Publishing Company, Los Angeles, in 1957.

The second volume was serially circulated by Mrs. Hill toward the end of 1955.

In her last years Ethel relocated to southern California and lived with relatives.

She died 22 April 1962 in La Mesa, CA.

interesting story,

was there an overall message that she was getting from these channelings ?

i ask that because the overall message from the current people receiving these messages is love and peace and included is a fearful message of that we must change our ways or we will suffer the consequences.

this Ashtar entity is seen by some to be an evil proclamator that is in disguise and is spreading a message to decieve.

You pretty much summed it up... this was typical Cold War era stuff for the most part, so the running theme was to portray Ashtar and his minions as something of an "advance guard for the return of Christ" etc. Particularly, a time of "great cleansing" was due on Earth soon which would result in a vast spiritual awakening/readjustment but not without massive loss of human life.

The shift was to be quick and immediate as a "flash of light."

The message seems comparable to that of George Van Tassel and other more well-know figures of that era. I thought what made Ethel's story fascinating was her age and previous experience.

I had to put the sketch together from scratch for a small group of odd history buffs I correspond with... for more info check out:

I hadn't heard the talk about Ashtar being a "bad guy" before. I shall look into it!
