Irma DeNagy was born Irma Eazol in Sz kesfehervár, Hungary, in 1897. She married into aristocratic Nozdroviczky family and had two sons. Since there were many Gypsies in Hungary, she became familiar with their folklore and fortune-telling. After reading a book about palmistry, given to her as a gift, she was "hooked" on the reading of palms. From that time on, she read many books about palmistry. She later married Ernest DeNagy, a renowned portrait painter who traveled throughout Europe. Under his tutelage, she became an artist of excellence, and her oil paintings are of the highest quality. While in Europe, she became fluent in German, French, and English and read many books on palmistry published in those languages. In 1931, she emigrated to the United States with her husband and children and settled in New York City. In 1952, she graduated from Dr. William G. Benham's New York Institute for Vocational Guidance, which covered the scientific study of human hands. She later moved to McKee City, New Jersey, near Atlantic City where her husband opened an art gallery and art studio. Being one of the world's foremost authorities on Scientific Hand Analysis, she lectured frequently throughout southern New Jersey and read the hands of hundreds of clients. Before her death in 1977, Mrs. DeNagy collected and read one of the world's largest collections of books on palmistry and Scientific Hand Analysis. These numbered over 200 volumes published in Hungarian, German, French, and English. She dedicated most of her adult life decoding and interpreting the lines, symbols, and other features of the hand for the purpose of helping humanity.
