O.E. Hugo, Spiritualist.

O.E. Hugo, who wrote two of the more convincing hymns to the ancient gods that were produced in 19th century New Zealand, seems to have been a colourful character. Like many of the eccentrics who provide material for this blog, he was a lecturer, but also a phrenologist and spiritualist. The following eulogy recounts some of his activities.
