Fun Fact
1976

In an experiment designed to demonstrate the practical applications of hypnosis in overcoming fear and stress, SF State Biology professor and hypnosis buff Jack Tomlinson hypnotizes 40 willing student participants. While some entranced students relive their childhood and others simply fall asleep, Professor Tomlinson considers the experiment a success, though his subsequent request to be appointed the official University hypnotist is denied by the Chancellor of the CSU.
