Nederlandse Vereniging voor
The Nederlandse Vereniging voor Parapsychologie (Dutch
Society of Parapsychology) was founded in 1960 by George A.
M. Zorab and other Dutch parapsychologists who rejected what
they considered the authoritarian leadership of the Studievereniging
voor Psychical Research’s Wilhelm H. C. Tenhaeff.
They considered Tenhaeff overly ambitious, an observation
which later proved to have a degree of truth when it was
discovered that Tenhaeff had been altering data from his research
to make his claims more impressive.
The society conducts some research but has made public education
its major focus. It sponsors public lectures and publishes
a journal, Spiegel der Parapsychologie. It may be contacted at
Postbus 271, 3720 AG Bilthoven, The Netherlands.
