So I'm trying to nail down Bess Houdini's birthday. I want to do something special for the old gal on my blog, but I don't want to get the date wrong.
So far I have:
Jan. 23 - sources are David Charvet's article on Bess in the Oct '95 MAGIC and the California Death index.
Jan. 22 - sources are Houdini Art & Magic and Pat Culliton's Houdini The Key.
Her tombstone just shows the year. Nothing in Silverman or Kalush that I could find.
Can anyone help a brother out? Maybe Jeff Blood reads these forums? (I've lost your email, Jeff.)
