Cleve Backster Effect Collection
We thought some of you might enjoy learning this news on the Cleve Backster. Here is some inside news on the Cleve Backster and also his life’s work. Here is a little inside scoop on the Cleve Backster Effect. Some of you may recall that Cleve joined our 2010 conference, live, via Skype, from San Diego. Sadly he passed away in 2013.
During the Skype exchange, Cleve mentioned finding a home for his research collection. A gentleman attending the conference (from Lafayette, IN) offered to help, and succeeded in transporting Cleve’s life’s work to Lafayette for storage. I am VERY pleased to say that the Cleve Backster effect collection has now found a permanent home. It will be AVAILABLE for research, at the University of West Georgia
About Cleve Backster
The Custodial History Note reads as follows: “ Before his death, Cleve Backster gave his papers to an owner and employee of the Lafayette Instrument Company (LIC), Chris Fausett. Another LIC employee, Todd Hooker, flew out.
to San Diego in September 2012. Hooker packed up contents of the 18 by 20-foot storage unit and trucked the materials to Lafayette, Indiana. The metal filing cabinets, cardboard filing drawers, and loose boxes of materials were stored in a warehouse at Lafayette Instrument.
Upon his retirement, Fausett gave them to LIC. In August 2018, the President and co-owner of Lafayette Instrument Company, Jennifer Rider, gifted the materials to the University of West Georgia.” To tie this in with our recent discussions, I will also add that Marcel Vogel was one of the first research scientists to confirm what came to be known as “The Backster Effect” and “Primary Perception.”
