National attention for the archive of the famous Dutch clairvoyant Gerard Croiset

Stichting Het Johan Borgman Fonds (HJBF) has been working on collecting and indexing the collection of the history of parapsychology and spiritualism in the Netherlands since 2007, but we’ve never received as much as attention for a specific archive as we do now. The archive of the famous Dutch psychic, Gerard Croiset (1909-1980) has caught the attention of many. Croiset became world famous for his involvement in missing person cases and his collaboration with parapsychologist as prof. Wilhelm Tenhaeff and prof. Hans Bender. However, fame never last long and Gerard Croiset has disappeared from the collective memory in The Netherlands. Until now, a renewed interest in the persona of Gerard Croiset was sparked by a large article in the Dutch Newspaper NRC. Ever since the publication of this article we’ve been receiving phone calls from researchers. This interest has proved to us that collecting the archives of parapsychology and spiritualism in The Netherlands is valuable to historians.
