I'm trying to find the dates of a series(?) of articles written by Bill Dodson & published in The Linking Ring. Any info or leads are appreciated. Thanks.

I think the series is "Electronic in Magic"

It begins in Vol 35, N10, Dec 1955 and ends in Vol 38, N3, May 1958

Richard,
I knew Bill personally. Many people, that had neither met either of us, would get the two of us confused because of our adresses. I lived in London, KY at the time and he lived in Lyndon, KY. Bill was a brilliant man. He and Del Ray were close friends. I once asked him if he devised Del's act. He said no, that Del was an electronic genius in his own right. They did council each other and share ideas, though. When Del performed at the Louisville SAM Convention Bill and Betty Dodson had a "Del Ray" get together after the final day. I was priviledged to be invited to Bill Dodson's house with other magi and Del Ray. What a great afternoon.
