Actress and Hotelier Beverly Garland passed away Friday (12-5) at the age of 82. What does this have to do with magic? Ms. Garlands wonderful hotel, The Beverly Garland (now called Beverly Garlands Holiday Inn) has been the home of the Los Angeles Conference on Magic History since its inception (Joan Lawton can be credited for finding this perfect venue for what is my favorite magic event). Ms. Garland took an active part in the operations of the hotel.
Aloha Ms. Garland, and thanks.
