Proceedings (of Psychical Research Societies)

Official publications of the societies for psychical research. The first in the field was the Proceedings of the Society for Psychical Research, London, the second the Proceedings of the old American Society for Psychical Research (1885-89), the third the Proceedings of the independent American Society for Psychical Research (1907-27) and the fourth the Proceedings of the National Laboratory of Psychical Research. The Boston Society for Psychical Research issued books and Bulletins, but nothing titled Proceedings.

Proceedings of the first four psychical research societies cited above and the reconstituted American Society for Psychical Research from 1907 onward are the subject of separate entries.
