Jarman, Archibald Seymour (1909– )
Writer on parapsychological subjects. Jarman was born on
June 23, 1909, at Richmond, Surrey, England. He worked as
an estate administrator and was associate editor of Tomorrow
magazine for many years, beginning in 1962. He also wrote articles
for British journals dealing with parapsychology, including
the Journal of the Society for Psychical Research. His article
‘‘High Jinks on a Low Level’’ (originally from Tomorrow),
published in Spiritualism A Critical Survey, by Simeon Edmunds
(1966), is an amusing description of three séances attended by
the writer and illustrates the crude methods of fraud carried
out by bogus mediums.
