My Growing Parapsychology Picture Collection

I’m putting together a presentation and a short movie for YouTube, and I’m trying to gather photographs that will illustrate what’s inside the book. I scanned a bunch of pictures when I was at the Rhine Research Center in 2006, but I need more. I’ve emailed the descendants of various people that are in the book to see if they have any to share, so we shall see. The Alexian Brothers in St. Louis generously sent me a picture of a hospital where an exorcism took place in 1949 (the building has since been torn down). So I’m off to a good start!

Here’s one of the pictures I scanned at the Rhine. It’s of Bill Davidson and the Bettys, Betty McMahan and Betty Humphrey (at a machine they built to roll dice, I believe). I love the expression on Betty McMahan’s face.

  1. Wow, I love this picture. Betty McMahan sort of looks like Ingrid Bergman in Gaslight when her husband was trying to drive her crazy.
