Logan, Daniel (1936-)

Logan, Daniel (1936-)

Modern American psychic. Born Daniel Olaschinez on April 24, 1936, in Flushing, New York, he later changed his name after deciding upon an acting career. Then he discovered his psychic ability and gave up acting for a career as a professional psychic; he also wrote and lectured on psychic subjects. Logan successfully forecast the prolonging of the Vietnam war into the 1970s, the race riots of 1967, and, weeks in advance, named the Academy Award winners for 1966, 1967, and 1968. His first public appearance as a psychic was on David Susskind's television show, and he later appeared in an hour-long television special. He is unusual in that his insights have often been verbal rather than visual; he sometimes makes predictions before he is aware of what he is saying.

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:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
