Dr. Spinner provides a model for “intuitive historiographic methods” as a way to approach the archives of the 19th century spiritualist movement. This talk will be of interest to WI historians given that the first spiritualist college, The Morris Pratt Institute, was founded in 1889 in Whitewater. Spinner draws from the WI Historical Society’s archives on local spiritualists to demonstrate intuitive historiography in action.
