University of London Council for Psychical Investigation

University of London Council for Psychical Investigation

A reorganization of the National Laboratory of Psychical Research, which had been founded by psychical researcher Harry Price in 1926. The National Laboratory passed under the direction of the University of London Council on June 6,1934. At that date the organization was still at the National Laboratory address, but by the end of 1936 the large library assembled by Price was moved to University College, London.

Later the National Laboratory's séance room and laboratory equipment were transferred to the administrative offices of the University Council, but all experimentation ceased with the outbreak of World War II. After the death of Harry Price in 1948, the library was bequeathed to the University of London.

A short-title catalogue of the library was issued as volume 1, number 2 of the Proceedings of the National Laboratory of Psychical Research, and a supplement was issued as the first bulletin of the University of London Council for Psychical Investigation. A second publication was issued by the University of London Council as Bulletin II, A Report on Two Experimental Fire-Walks; Bulletin III, Preliminary Studies of a Vaudeville Telepathist.

Last known address: University of London, Senate House, Male St., London.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com 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, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com 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:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • 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.
