Kenawell, William Wooding (1920– )
Assistant professor of history at Stroudsburg State College,
East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, and writer on parapsychology.
He was born on November 19, 1920, in Reedsville, Pennsylvania.
He studied at Franklin and Marshall College, Lancaster
(B.A., 1953), and Lehigh University, Bethlehem (M.A., 1955).
After graduation he worked as a librarian at the Lehigh University
library (1956–61) before taking his position at Stroudsburg.
Kenawell’s major contribution to psychical studies came
from a grant he received from the Parapsychology Foundation,
for which he engaged in a study of the life of Frederick
Bligh Bond, a British archaeologist who used automatic writing
in connection with excavations at Glastonbury Abbey, England.
