Administrative History of Het Johan Borgman Fonds

Het Johan Borgman Fonds (HJBF) was founded in Oosterbeek, the Netherlands in 1969 by Dutch natural healer and artist Johan Borgman (1889-1976) as an organization dedicated to his interests: academic investigation of parapsychology, natural healing, and art. It has funded a number of projects including Ph.D. research in psychic healing at Utrecht University and the creation of Het Johan Borgman College in 1995 to train students in natural healing techniques, and many conferences, art exhibits, and publications. Since 2007, HJBF has undertaken a number of projects to organize and facilitate the transfer of library and archives collections relevant to parapsychology, psychical research, Spiritualism, and other esoteric systems to permanent library and archives repositories in the Netherlands, Germany, and elsewhere, including this small collection of publications.
