Historian

Michael E. Tymn, a resident of Hawaii, USA.

       A 1958 graduate of the San Jose State University School of Journalism (B.A. Public Relations), Mike had two concurrent careers after spending three years as an officer in the U. S. Marine Corps — one as an insurance claims representative, supervisor, and manager, and the other as a freelance journalist. In his 40-year insurance career, Mike was called upon daily to apply the scientific method by weighing evidence in various types of civil claims and litigation and to make decisions relative to settling the claims or allowing them to go to trial. He also served as an arbitrator for the Insurance Arbitration Forums, making decisions in certain civil disputes. He holds the professional designations of Chartered Property and Casualty Underwriters (CPCU) and Associate in Claims - Insurance Institute of America (AIC).
        As a journalist, Mike has contributed more than 1,500 articles to some 40 publications over the past 50 years. Writing assignments have taken him to such diverse places as Bangkok, Panama, Glastonbury (England), Jerusalem, Hollywood, St. Paul, and Tombstone. He currently serves as editor of The Searchlight, a quarterly publication of the Academy of Spirituality and Paranormal Studies and as the Academy's vice president. His metaphysical and paranormal articles have appeared in FATE, Mysteries, Atlantis Rising, Vital Signs, Venture Inward, Nexus, Psychic News, Psychic Times, Christian Parapsychologist, Two Worlds, Dark Lore, Alternatives, Alternate Perceptions, The Honolulu Advertiser, The Honolulu Star-Bulletin, and The Honolulu Star-Advertiser. His 2008 book, The Articulate Dead was published by Galde Press and is available at Amazon.com
        Having devoted much time to the study of psychical research over the past two decades, Mike has found strong evidence for the survival of consciousness and a more intelligent afterlife than that provided by orthodox religion. He says he is impelled to bring this evidence to the attention of others, especially those in despair.
        A former nationally ranked distance runner, Mike is also the author of Running on Third Wind, a book which explores the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual aspects of running as a sport and fitness endeavor. A native of Alameda, California, Mike now lives in Kailua, Hawaii with his wife Gina.
