Notice biographique

Andy Dutton was born in 1933. In her early career, she did some fashion modelling, and was a file clerk at Confederation Life. Throughout her life, she also fulfilled a variety of volunteer roles: cubmaster at Appleby College, a “pink lady” at Oakville-Trafalgar Hospital, a director of the West Oakville Rate payers Association, member and sometime Chair of the Oakville Crime Prevention Committee, and one of the first official tour guides at Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum, where she served for over 15 years.

She married Lorne Henwood, her second husband, in 1970. In the early 1970s, she met Iris Owen when she attended a night class on parapsychology taught by Owen, and both the Henwoods joined the Toronto Society for Psychical Research (TSPR) on Owen’s invitation at the end of the class. They were members of the group that participated in the “Philip” experiments held by the TSPR from 1972-1977, which attempted to create a spirit or “thought-form” through intense collective visualization and concentration. This group also included A.R.G (George) and Iris Owen, the founders of the TSPR, Margaret Sparrows, and Dr. Joel Whitton, a psychologist. They created a backstory from the 17th century for this spirit, whom they named “Philip”, including love interests named “Margot” and “Dorothea”, and a tragic death. Through different circumstances – generally a traditional séance, as suggested by British psychologist Kenneth Batcheldor – the group experienced various phenomena, including table tilting, rapping, and levitation. The Henwoods remained active members of the TSPR until its demise in the early 1980s. She died of cancer 2012 in Oakville, ON.

Historique de la conservation

The fonds was donated by Lorne Henwood, the creator’s husband, to the University of Manitoba Archives and Special Collections in 2014, facilitated by Walter Meyer zu Erpen (Survival Research Institute of Canada, President).

Portée et contenu

This fonds consists of 5 pencil sketches done by Andy Henwood in Toronto in [1972?]: two preliminary and a final sketch of “Philip” the imaginary ghost (TSPR experiments), and a preliminary and final sketch of an unknown woman (possibly either “Margot” or “Dorothea”, “Philip”’s love interests).

Zone des notes

État de conservation

All 5 sketches are water damaged and fraying and/or tearing at the edges. The first preliminary sketch of "Philp" has a large horizontal tear most of the way across the page, near the top.

Éléments associés

This fonds is one of a series of fonds and collections transferred to the Archives through the facilitation of Walter Meyer zu Erpen, President of the Survival Research Institute of Canada. It is related to the various other Psychical Research and Spiritualist Collections that the University of Manitoba Archives & Special Collections has attracted since it acquired the Hamilton Family fonds. It is especially closely related to the A.R.G. (George) Owen and Iris M. Owen fonds, the "Conjuring Phillip" DVD (A13-138), and the Robertt W. Neilly fonds, as they all contain material related to the Toronto Society for Psychic Research (TSPR), and the Kenneth Batcheldor fonds.
