In this episode of Paranormal Underground Radio: In The Dark, we talk with Don Allison, author of I Met a Ghost at Gettsyburg: A Journalist's Journey into the Paranormal. Don was a devout skeptic, even going so far as to doubt his own grandmother’s claims of experiences in a haunted house. But after encountering the unexplained many times, he reluctantly concluded he indeed has experienced the paranormal.

Eventually, after what Don described as a mind-blowing paranormal encounter at Gettysburg, Pa., he could contain his curiosity no longer. He decided to write about his experiences, and to go a step further – to share the science behind what he has encountered.

Don is a lifelong resident of Williams County, Ohio, where the historic home he shares with his wife, Diane, is located. A 1976 graduate of Stryker High School, he earned a bachelor of arts degree in journalism from the University of Toledo in 1980.

As a high school student in the early 1970s, Don got his start in journalism as a sports writer and photographer with the weekly Advance Reporter newspaper, now known as the Village Reporter. He joined The Bryan Times as county editor in 1981, where he later served as editor and currently is senior editor. He has received numerous Associated Press and United Press International awards for his news, feature, and column writing.

Drawing on knowledge gained from a lifetime of studying the Civil War, Don has written extensively about that conflict. He and Diane are the founders of Faded Banner Publications, which publishes books on the Civil War and Northwest Ohio history.

Don’s previous books include Hell on Belle Isle: Diary of a Civil War POW and The Best of On My Mind: The Bryan Times Newspaper Columns of Don Allison. For more information on Don and his work, visit
