Leonora (The White Crow)
Call it an egghead melodrama. about 1900, William James was professor of philosophy at Harvard and also the first president of the American Society of Psychic Research. In the latter role, he encounters a young, pretty Boston widow, Leonora Piper, who was a medium. James had several sessions with her and was impressed enough to do a report for the parent society in London. There they read the report and decide poor Will was being taken in by a young and pretty faker. So they decide to send their most experienced psychic Investigator, Dr. Richard Hodgson, a handsome Cambridge University don, to Boston to expose Mrs. Piper, as he had already exposed Mme. Blavatsky and Eusaplo Palladino, and put the American society on Its feet, properly. The play opens In the library In the James' home in Cambridge, Mass., when Hodgson has come for his first seance with Mrs. Piper.
