Okay, you get the idea. Do you have any accurate mentions to add to the list? Please do so, as enquiring minds want to know. But don't if you think it may offend anyone's right to privacy.
I'm still trying to nail Marlo. I axed Mike Rogers on the phone about a year before Mike passed on and he was vague, which was unusual for Mike, but he said he thought Marlo was an electrician.
Crimper, I can't believe you're that illiterate: "axed"? What the hell is that? I suppose you mean "asked." Edward Marlo was a tool and die man Guy Hollingworth is a barrister Dr. Jacob Daley was a plastic surgeon
I found these entries in my copy of "Who's Who in Hocus Pocus":
Ken Krenzel - male model Alex Elmsley - squadron leader in the British SAS Karl Fulves - janitor at the "New Jersey Institute of Ayurvedic Medicine" Simon Aronson - bad ass ghetto pimp Richard Himber - yoga instructor
and not to forget ( to my recollection they are correct): Dr. William McComb M.D. Carter - Lawyer Pete Biro - photographer Perci Diaconis - Professor Ted Lesley - accountant Richard Himber - Bandleader David Ben - Tax Lawyer Alan Ackerman - Professor Kalanag - movie producer Gary Oullette - lawyer William Larsen Sr. - Lawyer Sid Lorraine - commercial artist Larry Becker - Advertising Executive Eugene Burger - Priest
Ken Krenzel is not a psychiatrist. He is a retired school psychologist who now has a private practice out of his home. Allan Ackerman used to teach mathematics. He now teaches computer networking but not at UNLV. :cool:
Although this is trivia to the max, my role at Eastern Airlines (1965-1989), which I had planned to do for 6 months, started out on the ramp. They called the job classification ramp serviceman. I then moved to Operations as a operations agent. Then I spent time in air freight as a freight agent. I also worked ticket lift and lost-and-found. (Eastern once lost Kreskin's luggage. You can imagine what I told him.) Nothing exciting at any position. Free travel was the carrot on the stick.
Before drifting to this part-time job, I worked as a social worker and program consultant for a voluntary health agency (Lung Association)...
When I started with Eastern, there was very little security. It was possible to board a plane parked overnight and access the [censored]. There were no check-points and no security guards and no searches.
If Kreskin's luggage got lost, then he should have known it was going to happen. It's his own damn fault. :D
Rick - The first time I was introduced to him, I said "You're joking." Unforunately Mr. Lederman is no longer with us. He was a very nice man and he had some very interesting stories. Also, the late night show host is terrible now.

Eugene Burger earned a degree from Yale Divinity School. At one time he was working to become a professor of comparative religions. He worked on staff briefly in a Lutheran Church assisting the pastor but was never ordained. He did social work for a while.
Charles Carter had a law degree but, as I understand it, did not practice law, although he did use his knowledge of the law to his advantage. His "day job" was as "Carter the Great," a traveling theatrical magician with a large show.
There have been several other magicians who had law degrees but did not practice, notably the late Stuart Cramer who once told me he had won his first jury trial, decided to quit a winner, and became a full-time magician.
