Gibier, Paul (1851–1900)
French scientist, director of the American branch of the Pasteur
Institute of New York, who became interested in psychical
research in 1885 and found a remarkable medium in Mrs.
Salmon (pseudonym of Carrie M. Sawyer), with whom he conducted
experiments for ten years both in his New York laboratory
and at his country home.
Gibier established the reality of some surprising phenomena
and planned to take his medium to England, France, and
Egypt, but his plans were cut short when he was killed by a runaway
horse. The night before the accident he reportedly
dreamed that he rode out alone, was thrown from his buggy,
and died; he told his dream to his wife and laughed at her fears.
