Thomas R. Tietze

March 14th, 2010 Posted in General

I was sorry to read that Thomas R. Tietze died last October. Tietze wrote an excellent book about the medium Mina Crandon titled, Margery; An entertaining and intriguing story of one of the most controversial psychics of the century. He wrote other books as well, but this is the one I read while researching the Parapsychology Lab.

There’s an obituary here. He was only 62! And apparently he was an English teacher for 32 years. “He loved a good laugh, a good book, and a good pipe.” I’m sorry I didn’t think to write him a note to thank him for his great research (I did credit him in my book, though). My condolences to his family and friends.

    I never got the chance to meet him but I was very lucky to be able to write with him often before he died. He was a wonderful person and writer.

    Oh, that is so nice to hear! Thank you for telling us. Did he share anything interesting in his letters that he didn’t put in his book?
