Pictured at one of our Harry Houdini seances are magic legends Walter B. Gibson (in overcoat), Dorothy Dietrich, and Milbourne Christopher. Walter, Harry Houdini's ghostwriter & confidant wrote the famous Shadow series and over 2,000 books, many on magic as well as on Harry Houdinifrom the escape artists notes. Bess Harry Houdini asked him to continue the Harry Houdini seances when she stopped. He passed on the legacy, responsibility and honor to celebrity magician Dorothy Dietrich, who's on our Board of Directors.
