I just learned that Max Hapner, a pro of long standing (featured in many of Joe Steven's ads: he looked like an old-time magician should with his neatly groomed beard and mustache!) passed away last night in Colorado. No other details. I believe that Max was one of the last living links to Paul Fox, though I don't know the details of their relationship.

What a sad thing to hear about the passing of Max Hapner. Though we've no longer seen each other as often as we did in the past, our occasional meetings were always a great pleasure. A man of great enthusiasm, and a contributor to magic..
