I just received word that John Daniel passed away. For the youngsters out there, John Daniel was a fine illusionist. He invented the Thin Sawing in Half. He was Irene Larsen's first husband (Irene was the original lady to be in that Thin Sawing, by the way, and they remained great friends to the end) and the father of Dante Larsen, the editor of Genii after Bill Larsen, Jr's death. He was a wealth of knowledge for me when I was researching my little book on Milo & Roger. He will be missed.
My condolences to his family and many friends.
