Slomann, Aage (1891–1970)
Danish chemical engineer who was concerned with parapsychology.
He was born on October 25, 1891, at Copenhagen. He
graduated as a chemical engineer in 1914 at the Technical University
of Denmark. He worked as a chemical engineer in Denmark
(1914–18), in Bordeaux, France (1919–20), and in New
York (1920–31). He returned to Denmark where he was a factory
superintendent for Colgate-Palmolive in Copenhagen until
his retirement (1932–56).
Slomann was particularly interested in qualitative research
and philosophical aspects of parapsychology, and he lectured
on psychical research throughout Scandinavia and broadcast
over Danish radio. He was a member of the executive committee
of the Danish Society for Psychical Research beginning in
1950, named honorary librarian and research officer in 1956,
and elected president in 1961. He was a member of the Society
for Psychical Research (SPR) and the Swedish Society for
Parapsychological Research, and he was a charter associate of
the Parapsychological Association.
In 1959, he completed a two-year survey of paranormal phenomena
in Denmark. He published many articles on parapsychology
in the Journal of the American Society for Psychical Research,
the Journal of the SPR, and the Danish
parapsychological journals Psykisk Forum and Psykisk Information.
