7 p.m. Gwen Tate Memorial Lecture - Dr David Saunders - The Carington Case: The Dreams of Eileen J. Garrett

 Registration is closed for this event
Walter Whately Carington was born in London in 1897. A brilliant scholar of physics, he gained an honours degree from Cambridge University. As his career progressed, he became deeply interested in psychical research and became a member of the SPR.

His contributions marked him as a most celebrated scholar in the field during the first half of the 20th century. In 1960, thirteen years after his death, the famous medium Eileen J. Garrett presented a series of systematically documented experiences of dreamed communications with Carington, claimed to provide compelling veridical information which could not have been known by Garrett at the time of their recording. A mostly unknown case, this lecture will provide a detailed account of the circumstances around the events and consider the strength of the evidence as support for the notion of the survival of human personality beyond bodily death. Finally, contemporary inconsistencies in the retelling of the account will be explored.
