Also, some interesting info from the New Phoenix, dated March 30th, 1961:
Several issues back we asked what happened to Louis Lam of Holland. Since then we have received letters from Brurio (Des Moines, Iowa), Henk Vermeyden (Holland), R.A.M. Driebeek (Holland), and E. W. Chinn (Brighton, England). All letters but one contained essentially the same information - that Louis Lam was arrested by the Nazi police, transported to an unknown destination and executed. One letter expressed the belief that Louis may still be alive. All four letters were received about two months ago. Just this past week we received a letter from Clive Hawthorne (Reid Hotel, Madeira) saying that on his last trip to the continent he was informed by reliable sources
that Louis Lam may have been the victim of a 'deal' between supposed friends of his and the Nazis, Louis Fortune figuring in the 'deal.' We would like to receive factual information which anyone may have as to the fate of Louis Lam. We have also been told that a gentleman in the Furniture business in New York City knows the real story and tried to communicate it at one time to a Dutch magician visiting this country. Not wanting to become involved, the Dutch magi did not accept the information.
