Andrew MacKenzie was born in New Zealand in 1911 and died at his home in England in 2001. He saw active service in India during World War II and later worked in Fleet Street as a journalist. He joined the Society for Psychical Research (SPR) in 1962 and soon became an active member serving on the Council for almost thirty years and as a Vice-President. He wrote numerous books on the paranormal and related subjects the most recent of which was Adventures in Time (Athlone Press). His method of research consisted of using existing evidence from such sources as the SPR archives as well as extensive travel to interview people and visit the scenes of alleged paranormal phenomena. His writings are particularly detailed concerning the 'Versailles Case' (An Adventure), the 'Belmez Faces', and the déjà vu encountered in Kersey, Suffolk.
