by Lydia W Allison
Who was Lydia Allison?
Founding member of the Boston Society for Psychic Research in 1925, trustee of the American Society for Psychical Research (ASPR) (1941-59), chairman of committee on publication (1943-59), and a member of the Society for Psychical Research, London, and the International Committee for the Study of Parapsychological Methods.
Allison was born September 14, 1880, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She married Edward Wood Allison in 1905. Dealing with his death led her to psychic research in 1920. During the early 1920s she visited the famous medium Mrs. Osborne Leonard. Her report on these sittings established her place in the history of psychic research.
This book is a record of those sittings, along with a number of sittings with a host of other top mediums from that time. The communications through the mediums came from E. W. Allison, Lydia Allison's deceased husband.
The book is clearly written. It gives a record of the sitting. Then a review of the sitting explaining if the medium was accurate or not. Plus there are additional analysis and foots notes from Walter Franklin Prince.
In my opinion, this is a very compelling read supporting the existence of survival of death. It doesn't fall into the usual "this is how things are on the other side" type dialogue, but rests in providing evidence of the identity of the spirit communicating. To me, that's very, very interesting!
