Houdini in 1917

Postby JohnCox » January 1st, 2017, 2:35 pm

As is my New Year's Day tradition, I've posted a detailed look back at what Houdini was doing 100 years ago. 1917 is tricky. It's not a year that instantly offers up anything obvious. Is it possible there was a year in Houdini's life that isn't interesting?

But in doing this, I've come to find 1917 very interesting indeed, and I think it might actually be the most significant year for Houdini and his impact on the magic community. I'm proud of this one, so please have a read:

Thanks Leo. Doing deep dives like this is really a NEW way of telling Houdini's story. I always learn from doing these.
