Mrs. L. Dow Balliet of Atlantic City is the authority for the modern method of relating names, numbers and vibrations.

For many years, Numerology was not a well-known subject. Through its presentation by Dr. Julia Seton, international New Thought lecturer, much was done to bring it to the public and into popular use.

She is credited with giving the Science of Names and Numbers the modern name "Numerology."
