Logan, Daniel (1936– )
Modern American psychic. Born Daniel Olaschinez on April
24, 1936, in Flushing, New York, he later changed his name
after deciding upon an acting career. Then he discovered his
psychic ability and gave up acting for a career as a professional
psychic; he also wrote and lectured on psychic subjects. Logan
successfully forecast the prolonging of the Vietnam war into the
1970s, the race riots of 1967, and, weeks in advance, named the
Academy Award winners for 1966, 1967, and 1968. His first
public appearance as a psychic was on David Susskind’s television
show, and he later appeared in an hour-long television
special. He is unusual in that his insights have often been verbal
rather than visual; he sometimes makes predictions before he
is aware of what he is saying.
