National Laboratory of Psychical Research
The National Laboratory of Psychical Research was established in 1925 by Harry Price, at 16 Queensberry Place, London. Its aim was 'to investigate in a dispassionate manner and by purely scientific means every phase of psychic or alleged psychic phenomena'. The honorary president was Lord Sands, K.C., LL.D., acting president was H. G. Bois, and the honorary director was Harry Price. In 1930 the Laboratory moved from Queensberry Square, where it had been a tenant of the London Spiritualist Alliance to 13 Roland Gardens. In 1938 its library was transferred on loan to the University of London.
In 1934 the Laboratory was replaced by the University of London Council for Psychical Investigation (not an official body of the University) under the Chairmanship of C. E. M. Joad with Harry Price as Hon. Secretary. Price suspended the operations of the Council in 1939 after severe criticism of Joad's investigations in psychic research was published in the Proceedings of the Society for Psychical Research. It was never revived.
