Stuart Cumberland

(1857-1922)

Stuart Cumberland was a British muscle-reader who would perform blindfolded feats such as identifying a hidden object in a room that a person had picked out or asking someone to imagine a murder scene and then attempt to read the subject's thoughts and identify the victim and re-enact the crime.

Cumberland did not believe in spiritualism, did not claim to possess genuine psychic abilities, and explained all mediumship phenomena with muscle-reading or trickery. He had a dispute with the Society for Psychical Research who was searching for genuine cases of telepathy and other psychic phenomena.
