James Hervey Hyslop, Ph.D., LL.D, (August 18, 1854 – June 17, 1920) was a noted American psychical researcher, a Psychologist, and a professor of ethics and logic at Columbia University. He was one of the first American psychologists to connect psychology with psychic phenomena. Hyslop took interest in psychical research in the 1880s. After retiring from his teaching post due to ill health, Hyslop founded the American Institute for Scientific Research in 1904 to stir interest and raise funds for psychical research. He had initially planned one section of it to be devoted to the study of abnormal psychology and another section to psychic research, believing, as he said, that "at certain points the two fields tend to merge and at others they are widely separated.
