Rudi Schneider (27 July 1908 1957), son of Josef Schneider and brother of Willi Schneider, was an Austrian spiritualist and Physical Medium. His career was covered extensively by the journal of the American Society for Psychical Research, and he took part in a number of notable experiments conducted by paranormal researchers/debunkers, including Harry Price, Albert von Schrenck-Notzing and Eric J. Dingwall. Some of which declared him to be a fraud, and others of which were unable to find evidence of trickery. Schneider began participating in Seances with his elder brother Willi Schneider at age 11, at which he claimed to be channeling the spirit of Olga Lintner, a persona previously used by Willi. He held his first solo seance in 1919 and is said to have been able to summon the ghostly image of a human hand, as well as a number of other manifestations that are traditionally associated with seances. Schneider began giving demonstrations to the Vienna Institut fur Radiumforschung der Academic der Wissenschaffen in 1923.
