Dr Hans Holzer
Birth: Jan. 26, 1920
Wien Stadt
Vienna (Wien), Austria
Death: Apr. 26, 2009
New York County (Manhattan)
New York, USA

Author, parapsychologist. He wrote over 140 books on occult subjects for the general market and also authored many media treatments and scripts. He is credited with having coined the terms "The Other Side" and "Ghost Hunter", which was the title of his first book on the supernatural in 1963. While he was long considered one of the fathers of modern parapsychology in professional circles, it was his study of the notoriously famous "Amityville Horror" case, and the several subsequent books he published on the subject, which brought him worldwide attention and made him a household name. He is considered one of the very first paranormal investigators. (bio by: Just another taphophile)
