Up until his daughter’s 18th birthday, December 1949, Robert Pinkerton
II had been willing to accept the U.S. registration requirement for
Psycrafters despite feeling it unjust. But in January 1950 things
change as Ann exhibits psychic abilities for the first time, making
her one of the youngest Psycrafters ever. Perhaps a function of her
genius level IQ that had allowed her to work, some say “brilliantly”,
in the Pinkerton forensic laboratory from age 16 on.
Robert, not wanting his daughter to register, begins a change in the Pinkerton private
security guard and detective agency to one that covertly has a proactive Psycrafter-
friendly employment and client policy. And although now headquartered in New Jersey
Robert also establishes a forensic research group, for whom Ann begins working, in the
original Pinkerton Chicago office. This despite the brutal cold there... who in their
right mind would want to visit Chicago these days!
In addition to U.S. operations several Pinkerton agents also operate surreptitiously
in London and have gained a reputation with the local police for “sticking their noses
in” during any on-going jewel thief investigation.
