Abstract:

Chiefly research data which Schmeidler gathered through her work with psychology students at the City College of the City University of New York and her colleagues in the parapsychological field. Includes correspondence, writings, and research files. Reflected in much of the research is the work for which she is most notable, the development of the metaphor of sheep and goats. Also contained in the research are her studies of how various surroundings, physical conditions, and personality traits can affect extrasensory perception abilities, utilizing several methods, including Saul Rosenzweig's Picture Frustration Study and Rorschach inkblots.

Other topics represented in the collection are: clairvoyant medical diagnosis; house hauntings; poltergeist case studies; telepathy; precognition; and psychokinesis. Researchers, psychics, and colleagues with whom she corresonded and conducted experiments include: Gardner Murphy, Ingo Swann, Caroline Chapman, Eileen Garrett, Betty Humphrey, Larry Lewis, Thelma Moss, Steve Heymaan, J.G. Pratt, Murry Melnick, and Christopher Scott. Much of the data contained in the collection resulted in publications of article or book length. One of the writings for which there are charts, statistics, and tables is the book she co-authored with Robert A. McConnell, ESP AND PERSONALITY PATTERNS. Among the organizations highlighted are the American Society for psychical Research, the Duke University Parapsychology Laboratory, and the Parapsychology Foundation.
