Leaf, Horace (ca. 1886–1971)
Well-known British lecturer and author in the cause of Spiritualism
and psychic research. His own psychic abilities included
clairvoyance, psychometry, and healing. Leaf traveled extensively,
meeting most of the important mediums in North
America and regularly contributing articles to such Spiritualist
journals as Light.
He was well known to the pioneer Spiritualist James Hewat
McKenzie, whom he met at the beginning of the twentieth century
while a member of a debating society in North London,
which discussed philosophical, political, social, and religious
topics. Soon after McKenzie established the British College of
Psychic Science in London, Leaf became a staff lecturer on
psychology and the development of mediumship.
