17. A leading Spanish historian who spent much of his life studying Columbus after years of research came to the conclusion Columbus was Jewish. His book puts this view forward. Interestingly, Geo. W. Baird, 33 degree Mason, also describes Columbus as Jewish in his article "The Discovery of American History," The New Age Magazine, July, 1922, p. 404. Also Manly P. Hall writes in his book America's Assignment With Destiny, pp. 50-58 various reasons for believing that Columbus was looking for Plato's Atlantis when he sailed, that Columbus was from Greece, and that Columbus appears from his writings to have been working for Secret Societies." There does seem to be much mystery and controvery about who Columbus was.
