Charles “Chuck” Curtis found paradise at age four when he moved to the Theosophist community at Lomaland in Point Loma. He attended Madame Tingley’s school, later joined the navy and married a woman from a prominent Point Loma family.

As a student, Charles would finish his school work so he could go play at Lomaland. It was his giant playground… with trees, beaches, animals, and other wonders of nature.

Also, the campus’ beautiful white buildings and purple glass domes provided him constant entertainment and adventure.

The school gave Charles a strong basic education: An introduction to the arts and woodworking, and a horticultural background.

The farming and sustainable workings of the Theosophists’ community helped him in creating his own wooded paradise (including Torrey Pines) on his picturesque property in Ramona, California.
