Name of creator
Thomas Lacey, a voice and trance medium, was born in Glossop, Derbyshire, England on November 4, 1895. Lacey immigrated to Canada in March 1923. Lacey began conducting séances in Hamilton and the Kitchener-Waterloo region in 1931 and continued throughout the 1960's. He rose to prominence in 1932 when he was noticed as a medium at Lily Dale in New York. A trumpet medium, Lacey would use the spirit of his brother Walter, who died at a young age, as a spirit guide and those at his séances experienced materializations and automatic writing. Thomas Lacey died on June 17, 1966 at age 70.
