About the Book

Louisa E. Rhine—whose name is destined in the annals of science to be forever linked with that of her husband, J.B. Rhine—completed this book, her last, at age 91 in March 1983 and titled it Something Hidden after a favorite poem of J.B.R.’s. This brilliant and inspiring researcher is now known to have played a major role in the advance of scientific psychical research that made “Rhine” a household word and Duke a yet more famous university, from the 1930s on. This final book, showing again her intellect and graceful writing, is probably her most important. The openness, humanity and keen-mindedness with which she approached her task are as significant as the task itself: an exposition of the inner life of the mind for both J.B. Rhine and herself throughout their days on earth.
