The Pioneer Journal



The new “Pioneer” electronic journal is compiled and edited by Paul J. Gaunt, editor of the Psypioneer Journal and curator of the Britten Museum & Library, which is housed in the Arthur Findlay College, Stansted Hall. Paul is also the SNU Librarian.


This new history journal will be presented much along the lines of Psypioneer, using original researched material wherever possible. Articles and quotes are taken from original sources as they were published at the time.


The journal will primarily cover the history of the Spiritualists’ National Union and its pioneers. This will be especially beneficial to the educational side of our Union and to those who wish to become more acquainted with its long history and its workers.
