Dr. Stevenson is the foremost researcher into life-death issues. Earning his MD from McGill University in Montreal in 1943, he graduated at the top of his class. In 1957, at the age of 39, he became head of the department of psychiatry at the University of Virginia School of Medicine. From there he began his research into reports of children who remembered past lives, and eventually gave up his administrative duties to become a full-time researcher of paranormal phenomena. His body of work – consisting of some 3,000 cases – is characterized by its meticulous documentation and cross-checking.
