Antonette Wealthy Matteson (July 12, 1847 - October 11, 1913) was a German-born American "Clairvoyant Doctor" and Spiritualist. As a "trance and healing medium," Matteson was reputed to have earned a fortune from her services as a trance diagnostician, and as a manufacturer of patent medicines, whose formulas she claimed to receive from her Indian spirit guide, Quid Mohegan.
