Fowler, Lottie (1836-1899)

Fowler, Lottie (1836-1899)

Professional name of Charlotte Connolly, American clairvoyant and medical diagnoser. While biographical details are scarce, Fowler attained brief fame during a trip to England in 1872. During this tour, in April 1872, she initially introduced Stainton Moses to Spiritualism. Florence Marryat often acted as transcriptionist for Fowler in taking down trance answers to letters as dictated by "Annie," her German guide. According to Marryat, Fowler was consulted by physicians of the court at the time of the Prince of Wales's dangerous illness, and from the beginning predicted his recovery.

It was through her mediumship that the body of the late Master of Lindsay of Balcarres, which had been stolen from the family vault, was eventually recovered. She predicted a London riot and the Tay Bridge disaster. Among her more unusual stories, in Medium and Daybreak (1872), is her claim that on February 17, 1872, she was paranormally transported from a bus near Oxford Circus, London, to an apartment in Blooms-bury, about three miles away.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
