Rhine lent an insight into the medium Mina Crandon's performances.Rhine was able to observe some of her trickery in the dark when she used luminous objects.Rhine's report that documented the fraud was refused by the American Society for Psychical Research, so he published it in the Journal of Abnormal Social Psychology.
