Walter's story

The current issue of The Magazine of the Society for Psychical Research (Issue 7, 2022) contains two groundbreaking articles about the life, death, and afterlife of Walter Stinson, brother of Mina "Margery" Crandon and her seance room spirit guide.

"More Famous Dead Than Alive: The Story of Walter Stuart Stinson" and "Phenomena of the Walter Personality" are co-authored by Walter Meyer zu Erpen and Anna Thurlow, the great-granddaughter of Margery. They contain a wealth of new information and feature many unique images from the Libbet Crandon de Malamud Collection, one of which graces the cover (right).

The Magazine of the Society for Psychical Research is sent to all SPR members. Non-members can buy individual issues via SPR website.
