Biographies of Classical

Mediums and Spiritualists

   Dedicated to the many notable scientists, scholars, and mediums who have worked so diligently to increase our knowledge of the nature of the afterlife.

 

OPENING STATEMENT

Over the last centuries many gifted and courageous scientists and psychics have labored to help us understand parapsychology as it relates to spirit communication. Information transmitted from the other side tells us that the consequences of the afterlife are enormous. Those who staked their reputation for these discoveries and truths deserve an important place in history so that what they discovered will not be ignored with the passage of time.

 

EMMANUEL SWEDENBORG (1688-1772)
Emmanuel SwedenborgOne of the leading scientists of his day, He wrote 150 works in seventeen sciences. At the University of Uppsala he studied Greek, Latin and several other European languages. Swedenborg was a very highly gifted clairvoyant who spent more than twenty years investigating the afterlife. He recorded that he was able to make contact with intelligences from the afterlife, writing several books about the afterlife including Heaven and Hell and Arcana Coelestia. more

 

ROBERT DALE OWEN (1801-1877)
Robert Dale OwenOne of the most versatile figures in his era. As editor, educator, and labor leader, as senator, diplomat, and man of letters, as legislator, feminist, and champion of a new religious faith, as advocate at one time or another of all sorts of reforms ranging from birth control to Negro emancipation, and as author of all sorts of books from theological discussions to treatises on architecture and plank roads. Owen wrote two of the most influential books of the early spiritualist period, Footfalls on the boundary of another world (1860) and The debatable land between this world and the next (1871). more

 

ALLAN KARDEC (1804-1869)
Allan KardecHe was of an old family honorably distinguished in the magistracy and at the bar. Endowed by nature with a passion for teaching, he devoted himself to the work of giving gratuitous lectures on Chemistry, Physics, Comparative Anatomy, and Astronomy for over ten years. He took an active part in the labors of the Society of Magnetism, giving much time to the practical investigation of somnambulism, trance, clairvoyance, and the various other phenomena connected with the mesmeric action. He drew up a series of progressive questions in relation to the various problems of human life and the universe in which we find ourselves, and submitted them to his unseen communicators, receiving their answers to the same through the instrumentality of the two young mediums. His conversations with the invisible intelligences completely revolutionized his ideas and convictions. He published them as Le Livre des Esprits (The Spirits' Book), called by many today "the Bible of Spiritualism" more

 

ALFRED RUSSEL WALLACE (1823-1913)
Alfred Russel WallaceBritish naturalist, codiscoverer with Charles Darwin of the principles of biological evolution. Wallace was a philosophical skeptic, a materialist. His experience of Spiritualist phenomena overcame his skepticism. In the preface to his book On Miracles and Modern Spiritualism (1874) Wallace writes: "They compelled me to accept them, as facts, long before I could accept the spiritual explanation of them: there was at that time 'no place in my fabric of thought into which it could be fitted.'" Wallace was led to believe 1) in the existence of numerous preternatural intelligences of various grades and 2) that some of these intelligences, although usually invisible and intangible to us, can and do act on matter, and do influence our minds. more

 

ANDREW JACKSON DAVIS (1826-1910)
Andrew Jackson DavisMedium, channel, and one of the founders of modern Spiritualism. Young Davis had gifts of clairvoyance and heard voices at an early age. In 1844 Davis had a strange experience that was to have an enduring effect on his life. In a state of semitrance he wandered away from home and awoke the next morning 40 miles away in the mountains. There he claimed to have met two venerable men--whom he later identified as the ancient physician Galen and the Swedish seer Emanuel Swedenborg--and experienced a state of mental illumination. While in an altered state in November 1845 Davis began to dictate his great work, The Principles of Nature, Her Divine Revelations, and a Voice to Mankind. The dictation lasted for 15 months. more

 

Dr CHARLES RICHET (1833-1886)
Dr Charles1850-1935 Very distinguished French physiologist and winner of the Nobel Prize in 1913 for his discovery of anaphylaxis. Professor of Physiology at the Faculty of Medicine of Paris, member of the medicine and Academy of Science and Honorary president of the Paris-based Institut Metapsychique International in 1919. Richet's insatiable curiosity also led him to explore other fields outside medicine, and with as much of passion. Indeed, he was at the same time a novelist, poet, playwright, sociologist and even pioneer of aviation!
He extensively investigated a wide range of phenomena such as telepathy, hypnosis, psychokinesis and ectoplasm (a term first coined by Richet), which he whole-heartedly accepted as real but could only interpret them in a materialistic manner. Founded the Annales des Sciences Psychiques in 1890 (the first issue appeared in 1891), whose title subsequently changed to Revue Metapsychique in 1920. He worked with colleagues of different nationalities including Dr. Gustave Geley, Sir Oliver Lodge and Prof. Baron von Schrenck-Notzing and with various mediums, including Mrs. Piper, Eusapia Palladino and Marthe Beraud. He summed up his general conclusions in Thirty Years of Psychical Research, which was translated to English in 1923 by Stanley de Brath. more

 

WILLIAM STAINTON MOSES (1839-1892)
William Stainton Moses
Medium and religious teacher who became one of the most prominent late nineteenth-century British Spiritualists. In 1872, five months after his introduction to Spiritualism, he reported his first experience of levitation. Psychic lights of greatly varying shapes and intensity were frequently observed. They were most striking when the medium was in trance. They were not always equally seen by all the sitters, never lit up their surroundings, and could pass through solid objects, for instance, rising from the floor through a table. Scents were produced in abundance, the most common being musk, verbena, new mown hay. Without any musical instruments in the room, a great variety of musical sounds contributed to the entertainment of the sitters. There were many instances of direct writing, demonstrations of matter passing through matter and direct voice, and materializations, which, however, did not progress beyond luminous hands or columns of light vaguely suggesting human forms. Moses' famous automatic scripts are known from his books Spirit Teachings (1883) and Spirit Identity (1879). more

 

FREDERICK W.H. MYERS (1843-1901)
Frederick W.H. MyersThe originator of the 'cross-correspondences' (a series of messages from the other side to different mediums in different parts of the world that on their own would mean nothing but which when put together would make sense) - 'the most persuasive evidence for the existence for the afterlife' according to Colin Wilson, psychic writer. He was a Cambridge Classic scholar and writer at the turn of the Twentieth Century. He was also one of the pioneers who founded the British Society for Psychical Research and was heavily involved in investigation of the afterlife and wrote Human Personality and the Survival of Bodily Death1903). Several mediums are said to have transcribed material from him after he passed on including Juliet Goodenow, Helen Dallas, and Geraldine Cummins. more

 

SIR OLIVER LODGE (1851-1940)
Sir Oliver LodgePioneer of radio, physicist, professor, one of the greatest scientists of his time. He described contact with his deceased son in Raymond; or, Life and Death (1916) - something which gave him the great authority when writing about the afterlife. He was also one of the first to write about the sub-atomic particle for the hereafter. Lodge's scientific work in physics includes investigations of lightening, the voltaic cell and electrolysis and electromagnetic waves. He also studied the nature of ether, a medium permeating all space and of the ether drift, the supposed relative motion between the ether and any body with in it. more

 

JAMES HERVEY HYSLOP (1854-1920)
James Hervey HyslopProfessor of logic and ethics and prominent psychical researcher. He was educated at the University of Leipzig (1882-84), and Johns Hopkins University (Ph.D., 1877). He was one of the first American psychologists to connect psychology with psychic phenomena. He joined the philosophy department at Columbia University as a professor in ethics and logic, during which time he became deeply involved with psychical research. As early as 1888, in a skeptical frame of mind, he was brought for the first time into contact with the supernormal through the mediumship of Leonora Piper. Messages from his father and relatives poured through. Out of 205 incidents mentioned as of his sixteenth sitting, he was able to verify 152. He publicly declared, "I have been talking with my father, my brother, my uncles. Whatever supernormal powers we may be pleased to attibute to Mrs. Piper's secondary personalities, it would be difficult to make me believe that these secondary personalities could have thus completely reconstituted the mental personality of my dead relatives." He wrote extensively including and Life After Death: Problems of the Future Life and Its Nature (1918) and Contact with the Other World (1919). more

 

WILLIAM EGLINTON (1858-1933)
William Eglinton"Mr. Eglinton lay on a garden bench in plain sight. We saw the bodies of four visitors form themselves from a cloud of white vapour and then walk about, robed all in purest white, upon the lawn where no deception was possible. One of them walked quite around us, as we sat in our chairs on the grass, talking as familiarly as any friend . . . [and] took my hat from my head, put it on his own, and walked off with it where the medium was lying; then he came and put it on my head again; then walked across the lawn and up a gravel walk to the foot of the balcony and talked with Mrs. Nichols. After a brief conversation he returned to the medium and gradually faded from sight.'' more

 

SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE (1859-1930)
Sir Arthur Conan DoyleWriter, psychic researcher. He was able to make contact with entities from the afterlife. Many people know him for his great writing skills such as his creation of Sherlock Holmes - but Sir Arthur's greatest gift was when he conducted research into the afterlife. He wrote a magnificent History of Spiritualism book 1 and book 2; also he wrote The Wandering of a Spiritualist - but his best books ever were dictated to medium Grace Cooke from the other side, Arthur Conan Doyle's Book of the Beyond and The Return of Arthur Conan Doyle. more

 

LEONORE PIPER (1859-1950)
Leonore PiperPerhaps the greatest American medium ever. One of the most spectacular and outstanding mental mediums who ever lived. No one, not even the most hardened closed minded skeptic after investigating her mediumship ever suggested fraud. She was able to convert the greatest materialist, closed minded skeptic this world has ever seen - Richard Hodgson. Because of her brilliant accurate information, Hodgson, who was contracted to by the British Society for Psychical Research engaged private detectives to follow her, to report on whom she met outside her home, to intercept her mail, to invite negative 'dummy' sitters unknown to anyone to her sittings - and to do everything possible to prove that this highly gifted brilliant American was not genuine. All failed and she remains today the greatest American mental medium who triumphed over great challenges. more

 

BETTY WHITE (1880?-1939)
Elizabeth 'Betty' White
Wife of Stewart Edward White. In 1922 Betty discovered, while using a ouija board, that she was able to communicate with entities which would later be dubbed "the invisibles". They invited a small circle of friends including "Darby and Joan" to participate in sessions during which her channeling abilities matured. Stewart's first book openly acknowleging Betty's contacts was The Betty Book (1937), a compilation of the messages his wife received followed shortly thereafter by Across the Unknown. These first books resulted in thousands of letters from the readers. The White's were very private people who had kept Betty's abilities under wraps for over a decade. more

 

STEWART EDWARD WHITE (1873-1946)
Stewart Edward White
Author who published a number of books of "channeled'' material. He studied at the University of Michigan (Ph.D., 1895; M.A., 1903). In 1904 he married Elizabeth (Betty) Grant, and they settled in California where he became well known as an author of many books, articles, and short stories dealing with his experiences around the state in mining and lumber camps, and on exploration trips. He wrote The Betty Book (1939), Gaelic Manuscripts, The Road I Know (1942), The Stars Are Still There (1946), The Unobstructed Universe. (1940) (his most popular metaphysical work) and With Folded Wings (1947). more

 

ARTHUR FORD (1896-1971)
American Spiritualist medium and founder of the International General Assembly of Spiritualists. Ford realized his psychic abilities during World War I. While in the army he would "hear'' the names of people he served with, and those names would appear on the casualty lists several days later. In the years after the war he investigated psychic phenomena and eventually joined the Spiritualists. Around 1921 Ford emerged as a trance medium, and "Fletcher,'' his control for the rest of his life, made his first appearance in trance sessions. He developed a popular following and in 1927 traveled to Great Britain. One of his lectures was attended by veteran Spiritualist Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, who enthusiastically told people the next day, "One of the most amazing things I have ever seen in 41 years of psychic experience was the demonstration of Arthur Ford.'' more

 

FRANCISCO XAVIER (1910-2002)
Famous Brazilian Spiritist medium. (Spiritism, the Brazilian form of Spiritualism, stems from the teachings of French Spiritist Allan Kardec.) Known throughout Brazil as "Chico Xavier'' (pronounced Sheeko Shaveer), he was born April 2, 1910, in the town of Pedro Leopoldo in the central state of Minas Gerais. He was one of a family of nine children. His mother died when he was only five, but Chico saw her materialize after her death, and during his period at primary school three years later, be became accustomed to hearing voices and sensing spirit presences. more
