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.
