Dariel Fitzkee in his book "The Trick Brain" writes that he helped invent the trick with an unnamed dealer to introduce at a Reno P.C.A.M Convention (p.224).

There is an advertisement for Ingagi, "1st Prize at Reno", in the Aug 1937 issue of Genii being sold by for STULL MANUFACTURING CO. So the unaamed dealer may have been the owner, http://geniimagazine.com/magicpedia/Robert_Stull
