New York Circle
The first experimental Spiritualist organization in the United
States. It was an exclusive body in the initial stages, later
broadening its membership. The principal medium was Edward
P. Fowler, who had sat with Kate and Margaretta Fox.
Fowler provided the location. Early members included the
judge John W. Edmonds. At one sitting of the circle, the medium
Henry Gordon demonstrated the feat of floating in the air,
i.e., levitation, in the presence of many unimpeachable witnesses.
At the initiative of the circle, the New York Conference was
established in November 1851, providing a focal point for the
growing interest in Spiritualism
