Doupe, Joseph (1910– )
Pioneer researcher on psychic healing. Doupe was born
March 10, 1910, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He attended the University
of Manitoba (M.D., 1934) and the Royal College of Physicians,
London, (M.R.C.P., 1938). During World War II he
served as a major in the R.A.M.C. (1940–46). Then in 1946 he
became a professor of physiology with interests in parapsychology
and head of the Department of Physiology at the University
of Mannitoba, Winnipeg, Canada. He is most remembered
for his supervision in 1960 of experiments concerned
with unorthodox methods of treating wound-healing in mice,
which would later form a basis for similar experiments by Bernard
Pleasants, Helene, ed. Biographical Dictionary of Parapsychology.
