On Terri Britt's Leading with Love this week, biographer Brian C. Wilson of Infinite Potential joins Terri to discuss his fascinating book on former Detroit Tiger owner and spiritualist, John E. Fetzer.
Fetzer was a pioneer broadcaster who brought the first radio station to southwest Michigan in the late 1920s. An excellent businessman, Fetzer made millions and was listed in Forbes magazine as one of the 400 wealthiest people in the United States. He also owned the Detroit Tigers for years. However, the most interesting thing about Fetzer was his life-long spiritual search, which led him to an exploration of a variety of metaphysical religions culminating in the New Age. The result of his search was that Fetzer used his wealth to found the Kalamazoo-based Fetzer Institute and the Fetzer Memorial Trust to further his spiritual ideas.
