Jarman, Archibald Seymour (1909-)

Writer on parapsychological subjects. Jarman was born on June 23, 1909, at Richmond, Surrey, England. He worked as an estate administrator and was associate editor of Tomorrow magazine for many years, beginning in 1962. He also wrote articles for British journals dealing with parapsychology, including the Journal of the Society for Psychical Research. His article "High Jinks on a Low Level" (originally from Tomorrow ), published in Spiritualism: A Critical Survey, by Simeon Edmunds (1966), is an amusing description of three séances attended by the writer and illustrates the crude methods of fraud carried out by bogus mediums.
