British accountant and statistician who conducted research on card guessing. He was born June 27, 1916, at Devizes, Wiltshire, England, and worked both for the Civil Service and industry. His interest in parapsychology led to his joining and eventually serving on the council of the Society for Psychical Research, London. His work on the "displacement effect" in card guessing was reported in Nature (vol. 157, 1946).
