King, Robert (1869– )
British professional clairvoyant and lecturer in occult science.
He sat for Sir William Crookes, with whom he was acquainted,
worked with Theosophist A. P. Sinnett, with whom
he served on the Daily Mail committee for the investigation of
psychic photography in 1908, and served as chief psychic of
Julia’s Bureau from 1909 to 1913. King toured Europe as a lecturer.
His particular psychic faculty was diagnosing cases in
which emotions were related to physical disease. He prepared
himself for the profession by studying biology, physiology, and
chemistry. King was not a trance medium and reflected spirit
messages in a perfectly still but fully conscious state.
