Fred Kaps passed away 40 years ago today

Postby Dick Koornwinder » July 23rd, 2020, 2:45 pm

Worldwide Magicians will commemorate the passing away of Fred Kaps exactly 40 years ago today. Four and a half month before his death he has received from The Academy of Magical Arts a ”Masters Fellowship”, the highest award The Academy can bestow. In 1982 Mr. Kaps was elected posthumously to the Society of American Magicians “Hall of Fame”. For a picture see my posting on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/p/CC_WwWBsYj5 ... i7h3l0cbxy

And apparently a Fred Kaps book is finally making its way into English (according to the Cafe).`

Here's a videoclip I hadn't seen before. Not sure where the first part was made but the latter part is at the Amsterdam FISM.
It mostly features Fred Kaps. There's an appearance by Dick Koornwinder at 8:57
