No, i'm trying to find the book right now. He was specifically a library cataloguer if I remember correctly... I do remember he claimed never to have
actually read the books, but to sleep on them and 'absorb' them.
Martin Gardner proposed that he got his info from books and details the influences of Jung and Blavatsky (which are obvious if you're familiar with
their work), and Charles Thomas Cayce said that correspondence letters were more likely. He actually consulted a lot of occultists and homeopaths to
'assist' him during readings, so no doubt he got info from them. Personally I think much of it was just his own unconscious mind dissociating into
whatever suited the person being read.
Regardless... he predicted most of LA, San Fran and New York would be destroyed in 1998. But people don't like to remember the failures.
