I see that Paul Swinford contributed card tricks to several publications. His lecture notes are still available from the 70s. He wrote booklets on the faro (More Faro Fantasy). I also saw that Aldo Colombini included one of his tricks called the The Cape Canaveral Trick on his Impromptu DVDs.
I believe Mr. Swinford has passed away. Can anyone share other information about Mr. Swinford? What is your favorite routine of his?
What was The Three Pile Problem?
