I'm interested in the history of "Torturette." (The arm-impalement trick from Abbotts.) I've done some digging, and I found an ad from Genie 1951 where it is introduced as a new effect. Underneath the name of the trick it says "Reasor".) Is this the inventor? I haven't had any luck finding out much more using the usual places, including Ask Alexander and MagicPedia.

Thanks in advance.
