Has anyone on this forum ever heard of a magician named Cicardi? If so, is he still among the living?

Any information at all would be appreciated.

Cicardi is the nickname of Dr. Charles Scott, inventor of Psi-Grafico and host of the longest-runing weekly show devoted to mentalism (Mindprobe.) Cicardi is a family name, used by Bascom Jones in MAGICK for his many contributions.

Charlie is very much alive, I spoke with him by phone yesterday. He lives in Sarasota Florida with his wife Alea. He's the single most influential inspiration for me in my development as a mentalist.

Thanks for responding so quickly, John.

Could you please e-mail his contact information to me? Borodin has an idea that he wants to market, but it uses a principle he got from Cicardi.

Borodin wants to do the right thing.

Thanks to those of you who provided contact information. I just got through speaking to Dr. Scott. He is a very nice gentleman and was quite helpful.
