There was a reference listed, and I have add two obituaries which recount his life. However the article is mostly still based on a single source, I have updated to reflect that. -- Aeonx (talk) 08:46, 27 October 2010 (UTC)
Experiments with Hypnosis
This article is rather short on details, and the three references listed at the bottom of the page do not add much.
I was an undergrad at Illinois Institute of Technology from 1958 to 1960, and it seems to me that his experiments with hypnotism while doing his postgrad work at IIT are worthy of mention.
I recall that the colonel claimed SOMETHING like this: That he had been diagnosed with terminal cancer and told that he had a rather short time yet to live (perhaps a year or less). He decided to experiment with self-hypnosis (of which he was initially skeptical) and thereby eventually cured or remitted his own cancer. (If that be true, he was, I’m sure, successful beyond even his own dreams, having passed away in his mid-90’s!)
This experience led to his delving further into hypnosis with subjects other than himself, and I can remember attending several demonstrations which were open to the public and were quite impressive.
He also had his detractors, but in that regard he was hardly unique.
The McLellan reference says that his first wife died in 1961, but I seem to recall that he was a widower during his IIT years, at least the years that I was there, but that was a long time ago, and I might be mistaken.126.96.36.199 (talk) 06:41, 18 December 2013 (UTC)
