We've done the Original Harry Houdini Seance here LIVE online for 20 years on Halloween. We did them for 15 years in New York City which was Harry Houdini's official home town. Pictured at one of our Harry Houdini seances are magic legends Walter B. Gibson (in overcoat), Dorothy Dietrich, and Milbourne Christopher. Walter B. Gibson, Harry Houdini's ghostwriter & confidant wrote the famous Shadow series and over 2,000 books, many on Harry Houdini from the escape artists notes. Bess Houdini asked him to continue the Harry Houdini seances when she stopped after 10 years. He passed on the legacy, responsibility and honor to celebrity magician Dorothy Dietrich, who's on our Board of Directors and does them here yearaly.
