The Spirit of Dr. Bindelof and The Enigma of Physical Phenomena: An Illustrated Presentation with Rosemarie Pilkington
Observatory (543 Union St., Brooklyn)
“My name was Dr. Bindelof…Will you be the disciples of a dead man?”
The Spirit of Dr. Bindelof focuses on one little known episode of physical mediumship, Gilbert Roller’s utterly charming and disarming autobiographical account of a group of teenagers who experimented with seance phenomena and contacted an alleged spirit named “Dr. Bindelof.” Author Rosemarie Pilkington will present the details of the Bindelof case using personal accounts along with photographs and artifacts created during the Bindelof sessions. There will be a brief overview of extraordinary physical mediums and the feats they perform, placing the Bindelof case within this wider framework.
