Clara Codd was born in England in 1876 and early in life rejected conventional mores. Rebelling against all oppression and injustice she plunged into the suffragette movement. But her meeting Col. H. S. Olcott, President-Founder of the Theosophical Society proved a turning point in her life. Foregoing her active role in the women's social and political union, she joined the Theosophical Society. As an International Lecturer for the Society, she had an unrivaled opportunity to observe human nature, which enabled her to speak and write lucidly on various aspects of life.

She joined the Theosophical Society at age 27. In her autobiography, So Rich a Life, Clara states, "I had come home at last after long wandering. I had found the beginning of the way." Three years later Clara was appointed the first national lecturer for the English Section. Later she served as National Secretary (president) of the Australian and South African Sections. Clara Codd’s Theosophical career lasted nearly 70 years, during which time she traveled to virtually every continent
