Does anyone have any info on Dr. Henry Beaumont of the "Great Southeastern Medicine Show and Tent Revival?" All I have is a booklet called "The Famous 3 Shell Game."
Any information would be appreciated.
Discuss the historical aspects of magic, including memories, or favorite stories.

I saw Dr. Beaumont perform his three shell routine at the Atlanta Harvest of Magic sometime in the early 1980s. I don't have any direct knowledge of who he is but perhaps Dan Garrett would know -- he was around at that time. I remember the routine as being very entertaining. I still remember the spiel he used: "Hey diddle diddle, the pea is in the middle. When the money is down, the pea can't be found."
I believe he owned a magic shop in Atlanta. Surely, someone from down that way knows if he is still alive, or what his address might be.
Dan Garrett tells me Dr. Beaumont was actually Doug D. Bush, who owned a magic shop in the 80's in Atlanta. Anyone have info on Doug Bush?
