Henry Geiger (August 10, 1908 - 15 February 1989) was the editor, publisher, and chief writer of MANAS Journal which was published from 1948-1988.

He “had been variously a chorus boy on Broadway, a journalist, a conscientious objector in World War II, a commercial printer, and a lecturer at The United Lodge of Theosophists in Los Angeles.”[1] Abraham Maslow called him “the only small ‘p’ philosopher America has produced in this century.”[1] Geiger was also an advocate of Edward Bellamy's type of socialism.[2] Some of Geiger's associates, such as Lewis Hill, would later be involved in the creation of Pacifica Radio.[2]
