Britten Memorial Institute and Library
Originally founded in 1900 at 64A Bridge St., Manchester,
England, as ‘‘a school of prophets’’ for the training of mediums,
an idea proposed by nineteenth-century Spiritualist writer
Emma Hardinge Britten. A trust fund was raised by Mr. A. W.
Orr with trustees E. W. Oaten, W. A. Herring, and E. A. Keeling.
Its library had over 3,000 volumes, many from a collection
donated by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. The institute and library
are no longer in operation.
