Dallas, Helen Alexandria (1856–1944)
An early British investigator of psychical research and author
of several books on the subject. Dallas was born July 12,
1856, in India, and was educated privately. Deeply religious,
she was preoccupied with the question of evidence for survival
and its connection with religion. Her interests led her to translate
Gabriel Delanne’s L’Ame est immortelle into English, as Evidence
for a Future Life (1904). She also sat with such famous mediums
as Florence Cook and wrote many articles published in
British periodicals such as Light and Psychic Science. She died
May 10, 1944, in London.
