James and Ljotun Young fonds

  • CA UMASC MSS 231
  • Fonds
  • ca. 1948-1963

The fonds consists of 25 spirit cards, which document seven spirit greetings. The cards were created using colour crayons on 4" x 6" card stock. The reverse of one card is dated July 4, 1962 and indicates that it was received at the Spiritualist Camp known as Camp Chesterfield in Indiana. Based upon comments within the text of the greetings, in which it is expressed that the recipient, Ljotun Young, would hopefully "come down here," but understanding that she was not able to "leave the cat," it is probable that the whole series of cards was received at Camp Chesterfield, Indiana, over a period of years (ca. 1958-1964).

Walter Meyer zu Erpen, President of the Survival Research Institute of Canada, confirms this theory and affirms the authentication of the cards by stating, "James and Ljotun Young are known to have travelled together to Camp Chesterfield during the 1950s, though it is doubtful that Ljotun would have gone to Camps Chesterfield after her husband's death. The spirit greetings reveal that on at least one occassion, Winnipeg Spiritualist Hannah Mary Macpherson (1888-1971) acted as intermediary in requesting a reading on behalf of Mrs. Ljotun Young. The daughter of Mrs. Macpherson confirmed that her mother visited Camp Chesterfield nearly every year. Mrs. Macpherson would have known the Youngs through one or more of Winnipeg's spiritual churches. Based upon the case given to preserve the cards, it is clear that they considered these greeting cards to be genuine evidence of spirit communications."

The process of creating spirit cards is thought to be that a spirit precipates the cloth onto the card without any physical, mechanical writing. The spirit greetings on some cards appear to have been drawn inspirationally through the hand of the medium. At times, these have been created at great speed and possibly in darkness.

His work in engineering is also documented, particularly through maps, including the Falcon Lake Park, highways construction, irrigation systems, and others.

His interest in the Hudson Bay Railway supplies a rich documentation on the subject. Some of the ephemera Hunt collected over the years is of particular interest. The material is especially valuable for historical research in the history of engineering in Manitoba and Canadian military history.
