As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

Dr. Wagner began his career in 1961 as an instructor of psychology at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Following this appointment, he held the position of assistant professor at Valparaiso University in Indiana from 1964 to 1966. Dr. Wagner maintained involvement with Valparaiso University as an associate professor from 1966 to 1967.

From 1967 to 1972, Dr. Wagner excelled as an associate professor at the State University of New York in Oswego. He continued his career at the State University of New York as professor from 1972 until his retirement in 1996. During this time, Dr. Wagner was also a guest professor at University of the Saarland in Saarbruecken, Germany from 1973 to 1974 and also in 1972 and 1981. In the past twenty years Dr. Wagner has given numerous invited lectures on alternative medicine at “Skeptics in the Pub” in Hanover, Germany, in London as well as at the German Society on the Scientific Study of Border Science.

He completed his education in 1961 with a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York. Dr. Wagner realized he wanted to study psychology while he was doing coursework for his undergraduate degree in chemistry, and considers the highlight of his career to be the research he did with a graduate student on the degree to which university professors believe in parapsychology.

The three people Dr. Wagner would consider as his mentors and without whom he would never have accomplished so many achievements are:

“Prof. Hans Werner Wendt, born in Germany July 25, 1923. He became a Professor of Psychology and I first met him at Valparaiso University in 1964. He is now retired as an Emeritus Professor at Macalester College, St. Paul, Minn. He used his German contacts to get me my first teaching/research position with Prof. Dr. Peter Orlik of the University of the Saarland in Saarbruecken, Germany. I have remained in close contact with Prof. Wendt and also With Prof. Dr. Peter Orlik.”

“Prof. Dr. Peter Orlik, born in Germany May 14, 1934. Dr. Orlik guided me during three teaching/research visits to the University of the Saarland in 1972, 1973-74 and 1981. And again I keep in very close contact with Dr. Orlik. In fact I visit him on each of my annual visits to Germany.”

“Prof. Dr. Robert Koenig, born in Germany July 4 1936. He was my mentor during my Fulbright Fellowship in 1989. Prof. Koenig spent his professional career at Justus Liebig University in Giessen, Germany. We engaged in joint research in addition to being exposed to many cultural treasures in Germany. And, again, I kept in very close contact with Dr. Koenig until his untimely death in 2016. In fact, I still make Giessen my central living place on every trip to Germany.”
