Jefferson Randolph "Soapy" Smith (1860-1898)
For those of you who are interested in the old nineteenth century bunko swindles, you might find my new website of interest.
The site is home for the Friends of Badman Soapy Smith. Soapy was my great grandfather, and although not a magician, his criminal history is often sought out by those who study magic. His story is a very fascinating one, that I am sure you will enjoy.
