William Seabrook (1884 1945) was an explorer of mysticism, whose interests had once compelled him to study the secret rites of Haitian Voodoo, the ritual of Muslim dervishes and the sorcery of African cannibals. He was witness to the orgiastic worship of these African natives as they cavorted before blood-stained altars deep in the jungles. A battle-scared veteran of the W.W. I French Army, Seabrook was author to numerous books on many such topics that his contemporaries in the West considered freaky taboos that were best left for oddballs to pursue.

Nevertheless, his pursuits attracted the attention and friendship of such fellows as the eccentric Aleister Crowley (1875 1947) and the noted parapsychology scholar Joseph Banks Rhine (1895 1980); it was the latter of these two who is mentioned in this article for his collaboration with Seabrook in the study of extrasensory perception.

Mention is also made concerning Seabrook's autobiography, No Hiding Place, that was released shortly before this article was published (November, 1942).
