Bill Kalush--Wall Street Journal

Postby Gene B » March 21st, 2013, 2:45 am

An interesting article appeared today in the on-line Wall Street Journal about Bill Kalush and the creation of the Conjuring Arts Reasearch Center.

The article chronicles great tidbits ranging from Ricky Smith to Ricky Jay---from David Copperfield to David Blaine.

It centers on the fantastic job that Bill has accomplished in creating this library.

You can see the article---Google:

"Years of Magical Thinking-WSJ.com"

A great article about an invaluable resource. It's fantastic when one of magic's true gems, organizations, events, and people that really show magic in a distinguished and positive light—like the CARC—makes it into the mainstream media outlets. Congratulations to Mr. Kalush. (And thanks for posting.)

Dustin

PS: Besides the video, there is also some added audio.

It's not often that you can get David Copperfield, Teller, Ricky Jay, and David Blaine to comment positively about someone in the same article!

Plus, he's one of the nice guys.

Is "Ask Alexander" just periodicals?

Or does it also include scans of full books, even fairly current ones?

In addition to the FISM award, Bill received a Literary Fellowship from the Academy of Magical Arts (Magic Castle). Both awards were well deserved.

Chris, there are different levels to Alexander, and also access is different based on whether you are at the Conjuring Arts Research Center or viewing remotely. There is much copyrighted work on Alexander that cannot be reviewed remotely.

Ah, thanks for the link. It wasn't very clear before when I was searching for that information.

Thanks for posting the article link. As one with high interest in the history of magic it is great to know that someone is working hard to keep the art from passing into obscurity. Well done Mr. Smith and Mr. Kalush.
