Description: PsychicÍs Question Box. The Great Raymond Presents Anna Lee Snyder in ñPsychic Impressions.î Circa 1910s. Woven bamboo and pot metal basket, lined with floral silk, and incorporating a hidden switching compartment, used to foretell the fortunes of audience members based on the questions they have posed on slips of paper. 10 x 7 x 5î. With a file of several hundred pre-printed question slips, many filled with spectatorÍs handwritten questions. Contemporary newspaper accounts from her native state of Oregon reveal that Snyder took up a career as a psychic in the first decade of the twentieth century after she was afflicted with the ñeye rheumatismî that eventually blinded her. Little else about her is recorded, though it is evident she remained in the field into the 1930s. Bernard M.L. Ernst, in ñThe Sphinx,î reported on a 1934 performance in Portland, Ore., where Snyder appeared with Raymond.
