Julian Winston

Julian Winston was born May 31, 1941 in New York City and died June 12, 2005.

After moving to Philadelphia to teach at the University of the Arts, Julian Winston was introduced to homeopathy in 1971 by Raymond Seidel, MD, HMD, a pupil of Calvin Knerr.

Julian attended the National Center for Homeopathy Summer program at Millersville in 1980, served as registrar of the program from 1981 through 1987, and served as dean of the program from 1988 until 1992.

He was elected to the board of directors of the NCH in 1982. He has been the editor of the NCH newsletter, Homeopathy Today since 1984. He was appointed NCH Director Emeritus in 1997. He is also a member of the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia Convention of the United States (HPCUS). In 1999 he was the first recipient of the Martha Oelman Community Service Award from the National Center for Homeopathy.

He moved to Tawa, New Zealand in 1995. Just a short drive from Wellington, he resided there with his homeopathic library of over 2,000 volumes, 4,000 vials of historical remedies, and a soon to be cataloged collection of homeopathic ephemera. With his wife, Gwyneth Evans, he was a co-director of the Wellington College of Homoeopathy. He edited Homoeopathy NewZ, a magazine of homeopathy in New Zealand.

In 1999 he authored and published The Faces of Homoeopathy: An Illustrated History of the First 200 Years, the first comprehensive overview of homeopathy that included the decline and rise through the last half of the 20th century. It is this masterwork which formed the basis for the history of homeopathy in various countries on this Timeline.

His book, The Heritage of Homoeopathic Literature: An Abbreviated and Annotated Bibliography was published in January, 2002.
