Collection Historical Note

Jean Millay earned an Associate of Arts degree (with honors) from Sacramento City College in 1948, a BA from the University of California, Berkeley in 1962, and a PhD in Human Science from the Saybrook Institute in 1978.  She also completed a General Secondary Teaching Credential and Special Credential in Art from the University of California in 1963.  Millay acted as the art director for the development of interactive educational software at DynEd International before her retirement and created the computer art for interactive educational programs for Picodyne Corporation and later DynEd International.  She, along with Dean Brown and Tim Scully, created INTEGRATION, the first biofeedback stress management game for the IBM pc in 1984.  She is known for her collaboration with Allan Willis in filming The Psychedelic Experience, winner of the 1965 San Francisco International Film Festival and the Harold L. Zellerbach Foundation Award.  Millay served as the president of the Parapsychology Research Group in San Francisco for six years and co-invented the stereo brain wave biofeedback light sculpture with Tim Scully, which was demonstrated at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 1972.  She has written books and articles including Multidimensional Mind: Remote Viewing in Hyperspace with a foreword by Stanley Krippner; she edited Silver Threads alongside Dean Brown and Beverly Kane and Radiant Minds by Russell Targ and Dean Radin.
