(1970); pg. 1869. "Gardner's followers in the '50s were often referred to as Gardnerian witches; for the last few years they have been increasingly superseded by the 'Alexandrian' variety, whose leader is a Manchester-born man named Alex Sanders... It is through the witchcraft of Alex Sanders that Wicca in the long run seems more likely to establish itself, if at all. The Alexandrians seem to have a far greater percentage of young people in their ranks, than the Gardnerians, and most of them are of a high educational standard. Sanders... has made numerous radio and television appearances, has appeared in several films in Britain, the Continent, and Canada, and is the subject of a book by June Johns, King of the Witches... Sanders is firmly at the helm of his enterprise; if he appears ambitious, he also has the future of Wicca at heart, expounding the principles and beliefs... with all the sincerity of any missionary.
