Cartheuser (ca. 1927-1935)
|Born||January 19, 1890|
|Died||February 25, 1966 (aged 76)|
Los Angeles, California
Cartheuser originally worked as a mechanic. He became a direct-voice medium who had utilized trumpets in his séances. He was investigated by members of the American Society for Psychical Research. In 1927, he held a séance with Nandor Fodor in New York. Psychical researchers suspected Cartheuser was fraudulent.
In 1928, he conducted séances with the spiritualist Jenny O'Hara Pincock in Ontario, Canada. Pincock originally endorsed Cartheuser as a genuine medium but later broke connections, suggesting that he had turned his mediumship into a financial scheme.
