Paul Gibier


          French scientist, Director of the American branch of the Pasteur Institute of New York, became interested in psychical research in 1885, found a remarkable medium in Mrs. Salmon with whom he conducted experiments for ten years both in his New York laboratory and at his country home. He established the reality of surprising phenomena and, under a three years contract wanted to bring his medium to Britain, France and Egypt when a fatal accident cut short his plans. He was killed by a runaway horse. The night before he dreamed that he rode out alone, was thrown from his buggy and died. He told his dream to his wife and laughed away her fears.

Dr. Gibier wrote Spiritism or Eastern Fakirism, 1886, and The Analysis of Things Existing, 1890.
