The Halloween Harry Houdini Seance on the Internet Oct 30-Oct 31.

The Halloween Harry Houdini Seance

We are asking everyone on the web to attempt to contact Harry Houdini sometime during Halloween for the 24 hours of October 31st and email us with any results and lack of results. No kooks please, this is a serious seance test and seance tribute.

Chosen as one of the "7 Wonders of the Web"

The Harry Houdini Museum has been open to the general public in the Scranton/Pocono area. Prior to that a part of the exhibit was on display for 13 years at the famous Magic Towne House in New York City. The Magic Towne House was the location of the Halloween Harry Houdini Seances held in New York City, where Harry Houdini and his wife lived most of their adult life. Many famous magicians attended our Halloween seances including Milbourne Christopher and Walter B. Gibson. According to Walter Harry Houdini's wife after her final Houdini seance, asked him to carry on the Halloween seance and Walter, asked magician Dorothy Dietrich to carry the seances on as a tribute to Harry Houdini on several occasions before he passed away.

The photo shows some of Magic's most famous figures at a New York "Halloween Harry Houdini Seance." Although these have been called "seances" by many, it was really meant as a scientific test between Harry Houdini, his wife Bess Houdini and friends which she carried on for ten years when Bess Houdini did the final Houdini seance..

Seen in this photo are
1) Magic author and editor Byron Wells.
2) Long lost friend Solomon Cohen (where are you?)
3) Famous author Walter B. Gibson, author of "The Shadow," Harry Houdini biographer, ghost writer, confidant of Harry Houdini and his wife Bess. Before he died he asked Dorothy Dietrich to carry on the tradition of Houdini's wife's yearly seance tributes to Harry Houdini called by many "seances."
4) America's leading female magician and an expert on Harry Houdini, Dorothy Dietrich She carries on the Halloween Harry Houdini Seance.
5) Milbourne Christopher, magic historian, and biographer of Harry Houdini who attended most of the New York Halloween "Harry Houdini Seances" at The Magic Towne House before his death.

Please note the NYC Mayor's proclamation above Walter and Dorothy's head.

Harry Houdini never said he was coming back, or that he would open handcuffs, etc. Harry Houdini was the exposer of the very people who claimed they could get messages from your dead relatives, make their ghosts appear, in a seance, etc. Harry Houdini said such things were in his experience not possible, but being the greatest escape artist/magician that ever lived he, Harry Houdini, would try to escape from the beyond in a seance or any way he could. After ten years of no results doing the Halloween seances his wife Bess Houdini sent out a letter to participants and took ads saying "since the failure of the ten year TEST, it is my opinion that all concerned have struck a mighty world wide blow at superstition." That was her final Houdini seance.
