    Sorry, none of these. He wasn't considered an "intellectual" in an academic or philosophical sense, but he had a certain kind of intelligence. After WW2, he became quite popular and gave lectures and appearances inc. on TV, as well as some consultation work based on his particular feats and expertise. He's European.

    Hi, Hank,

    He was in WW2 but was not a professional military man. He did some work with the police and researchers although a number of critics questioned his so-called abilities.

    Here's a pic of him as a younger man:

    Except my knowledge of psychics is little better than my knowledge of quantum physics.

    Maybe he was one of those people who wrote up some psychological profiles of Hitler with the aim of being able to predict what actions Hitler would take.

    He seemed to have done more detecting than predicting, of things about people's lives or crimes, etc. I don't think he did anything involving Hitler.

    The only one that springs to mind is Dutchman Gerard Croiset, but he had mad professor hair.

    Research leads me to another Dutchman Peter Hurkos portrayed by George Voskovec in The Boston Strangler.

    Well done, Bruiser. He is indeed Peter Hurkos.

    Carry on,

    Mr. Sloane, a little help is needed, I think.

    Is he American and is he a criminal?
