Please help us fulfill David’s wishes by contributing to a better world with improved drinking water and sanitary conditions while enjoying the published work of a scholar, community leader, and a cherished member of ASD.
David Pitkin was an author, researcher, and 9th grade teacher of African and Asian Studies from the Saratoga area of New York. David first became interested in the paranormal in the 1960s, and for the next fifty years his prolific studies in the field of paranormal investigation produced a large body of work, including some of the best written records of ghosts and paranormal activity in New England and beyond.
David was a dowser and a metaphysical practitioner, first joining the American Society of Dowsers in the early 1960s. ASD is proud to recognize and honor David among our society’s earliest members. David was a reader at the Edgar Cayce Foundation and a scholar of Cayce’s work.
David’s published works include the publication of nine books, an audio CD, and countless presentations on a variety of metaphysical topics. A well-recognized figure in his community, television and international radio, Davidâ€™s good nature and personal gravity lent to the pleasure of his presence for all who spent time with him, from his thousands of high school students to his family, friends, and associates.
David passed on in February 2013, leaving the inventory of his publisher, Aurora Publications. Upon his wishes, The American Society of Dowsers has accepted inventory of David’s published works for the purpose of funding clean water projects through our philanthropic outreach program, Water for Humanity.
David’s son was blessed with a marriage to an Indian-American woman and they were blessed with two children. David’s grandchildren were an important part of his life. David’s wish upon his passing was to use his life’s work as a means of providing safe and clean water for people throughout India.
ASD is happy to announce that the revenues we have received for the David Pitkin Fund have successfully funded a well in Tamil Nadu in Southern India and we are planning another well in Tamil Nadu, also being funded with money from the Pitkin Fund.
