Renowned magician on tour‎ - Calgary Sun
One of the most amazing things about The Amazing Kreskin is that at 77, he still has a busy touring schedule. He’s always eager to accept Canadian dates because it was in Ottawa that he filmed The Amazing World of Kreskin, the television show that made him an international sensation. The show ran five and a half years, from 1970 to 1975, with 26 unscripted episodes a season. When asked ‘why Ottawa?’ he likes to say “because they came to me. In its first two years it was the second-highest-rated show in Canada next to Hockey Night in Canada.”

Under the Spell of Gilded Age Magicians‎ - New York Times
The magician Howard Thurston was so renowned in his day that when he died in 1936, at 66, a newspaper published a cartoon of him bidding farewell to wistful children learning the mechanics of card tricks, disappearing rabbits and spookily hovering spheres. His competitor Harry Houdini has since eclipsed Thurston, but a magician in Brooklyn named Rory Feldman is trying to remedy that. Mr. Feldman, 31, has been tracking down Thurston memorabilia for two decades. The current object count in his apartment and assorted storage spaces is over 30,000...
