I have to share the sad news that "Barbara Hudson", (aka Barbara Katicich) died on Jan. 30th. Her ashes were scattered in San Franciso Bay 2 days ago.
She worked as an assistant to Harry Blackstone, Sr. near the end of his career, among her duties was bringing onstage The Floating Light Bulb, to Mr. Blackstone.
She was among those featured in a Genii article, "Blackstone Assistants Reunite".
She was introduced at The 2005 Magic Collectors Weekend in Las Vegas, and enjoyed sharing her memories with others at that convention and to others in her last years.
She was real show people and will be missed.
