Dutch psychic who gained ESP abilities after a blow to the head on 7/10/1941, which left him unconscious for three days. After his accident, he became religious. Hurkos also became afflicted with blinding headaches and his temperament was volatile and moody. Upon testing, he was declared psychometric; Hurkos claims 87% accuracy. In addition to using his new-found abilities to do professional work, he also did TV guest spots. His autobiography, "Psychic," came out in 1961. He "tuned in" to some of his subjects while in a sleep state, when he could speak in tongues or in foreign languages, but he also did psychic work while awake.
Hurkos was said to have been born with a caul, the milky veil over his head that old wives considered the mark of a mystical child. As a boy, he was a poor student, dropping out of school when he entered his teens. He was a loner who spent much time in the woods or in solitude, dreaming and exploring, prone to fantasies and visions.
Hurkos was married in 1956 and had one daughter; the marriage lasted for five years.
Hurkos died in Los Angeles on 6/01/1988.
