Collection Description & Creator Information
This collection consists of Carrington's papers on spiritualism, including correspondence with literary and scientific figures of the day, such as William Barrett, Ernesto Bozzano, Gustave Geley, Stanley Hall, Joseph Jastrow, Sinclair Lewis, Eusapia Palladino, and Mrs. A. W. Verrall. Also included are photographic documentation of psychic phenomena, stills from the film series "The Mysteries of Myra," several short Carrington manuscripts, and two of his diaries (1923, 1930). In addition, there is a group of approximately 30 letters (1931-1940) to Carrington from a broad group of American and European psychical researchers, as well as typed transcripts of responses from many of them supporting his proposed Psychical Laboratory and agreeing to be on its International Council.
