Dr. Morris was a respected genius in the field of acoustics, sonar, and geological exploration. His techniques for ground exploration earned him thousands of dollars from the mining and petroleum industries. When his wife died giving birth to his daughter, it destroyed him. He wanted to find a way that no one would ever feel that loss again. With rumors of psychic abilities that could have either predicted the problems or healed his family, he became obsessed with discovering the nature of the psychic mind. He eventually began to believe he could detect psionic ability through ultrasonic scanning of the brain. His research was uncertain at best, and he was not accepted by the general scientific community due to his inconsistent methods and results. In desperation he began pushing his techniques further until he became convinced he could induce psionics in the human mind. His personality was always brusque, but was dictatorial in his classroom. His current whereabouts are unknown.
