Notice biographique

Alexander Pereima was born on 15 July 1922 in Montréal, Québec. In his early career, he was a ballet dancer and one of the founding members of Les Ballets Québec in the late 1940s. In 1958, he graduated from Sir George Williams University, now Concordia (Montreal), with a B.A. in economics. He and his partner Maurice Legault were long-time members of First Spiritualist Church of Montreal (FSCM), attending many lectures there and at St. James United Church in Montreal, with which there was a lecture exchange; later, they attended Springdale Church in Toronto. They knew a number of prominent Spiritualists, including British medium/SNU minister Mrs. Hilda Martin, and British direct voice medium Leslie Flint and his partner Bram Rogers. Pereima died on 18 March 2009 in Ottawa, Ontario.
