This book is the story of his life, his accomplishments, and his legacy.
He was, as the Baltimore Sun called him, "a topflight man of mystification."
Suave, handsome, well-spoken, educated, quiet and calm in demeanor, he
conjured for audiences both on stage and in intimate settings. He was well
organized, committed to his calling, and above all, a gentleman. In this
account of his life beginning with his birth in 1914, the author covers
his many achievements, and especially his contributions from the 1930's
to the 1970's, up until his death in 1984.
