The Mysterious Housewife of Park Avenue: Leonora E. Piper (1859-1950): An Illustrated Talk Dee Morr


Spiritualism asserts that the living can communicate with those who have passed away. Arguably the most famous American medium in the early 20th century, Mrs. Piper of Arlington Heights may have possessed extraordinary psychic powers. She was 'discovered' by the famous Harvard psychologist Prof. William James who spent over twenty years testing her abilities. Yet skeptics pointed out that many of her trance utterances were flawed. Undeniably a devoted wife and mother, did she provide authentic glimpses into the after-life? This slide show talk will be presented by local historian Dee Morris.
