begin with a bit of background on ghost research past and present. When we
think about “ghost hunting”, we think of the television shows and think it's a
relatively new pursuit. The ghost hunting movement actually began back in the
mid 1800s. A European children's book author, Catherine Crowe, published a

emerged in Victorian England's elite universities and private athletic clubs as an
artifact of the class system. The amateur athlete was equated with the gentleman
sportsman who participated out of love for the game. The distinction of amateur
was tied to the ...

What is important is that every individual have many available avenues for
personal expression characterized by the broad personal commitment of the
amateur. In community, at least, the vital spirit of the amateur should normally
override the cold precision of the professional. The professional's supremacy
rests with his skill, the amateur's with his spirit, and community is preeminently
the place for expressions of the human spirit. Just as the attitude of the
professional now radiates to ...

study helps to clarify the values and belief systems of the respective sectors.
Indeed, even after he turned professional, Watkins continued actively to espouse
the amateur 'spirit' over the professional in almost every regard, directly
challenging what he believed to be the spurious 'professionalism' of the mass
media. For Watkins, film ...
