Independent Spiritualist Association of the
United States of America
The Independent Spiritualist Association of the United
States of America was founded in 1924 by Amanda Cameron
Flower (1863–1940), a medium with the National Spiritualist
Association of Churches (NSAC). Flower absorbed some theosophical
emphases, including a belief in reincarnation, an idea
not consistent with NSAC belief. She also protested the NSAC
rule against its mediums teaching or doing mediumistic work
in non-NSAC churches. Last known address 5130 West 25th
St., Cicero, IL 60650.
