William Brown

     BORN IN 1881, eminent Harley Street specialist, Wilde Reader in Mental Philosophy at Oxford University, a keen inquirer into psychical research. In two letters to The Times (May 7, 14, 1932) he wrote appreciatively but guardedly of Rudi Schneider's powers and declared that they are worthy of the closest scientific investigation. In a lecture delivered during the jubilee celebrations of the SPR he reviewed the evidence collected and examined by the society and declared that it was "sufficient to make survival scientifically extremely probable."
