Dallas, Helen Alexandria (1856-1944)

An early British investigator of psychical research and author of several books on the subject. Dallas was born July 12, 1856, in India, and was educated privately. Deeply religious, she was preoccupied with the question of evidence for survival and its connection with religion. Her interests led her to translate Gabriel Delanne 's L'Ame est immortelle into English, as Evidence for a Future Life (1904). She also sat with such famous mediums as Florence Cook and wrote many articles published in British periodicals such as Light and Psychic Science. She died May 10, 1944, in London.
