Milbourne Christopher

He wrote more than twenty books, was national president of the Society of American Magicians (SAM), and was an honorary vice-president to the London Magic Circle. Milbourne Christopher was also chairman of SAM’s Occult Investigating Committee and was one of the original members of CSICOP.

His collection of magic memorabilia contained prints, paintings, photographs, posters, playbills and drawings of the greatest conjurers in history, and was the largest in private hands. Many of these items appeared in his book The Illustrated History of Magic.

With over 20+ books, ten Television specials (including the first on prime time network TV in the US), two Broadway magic shows, 1 Off-Broadway spectacular, starred at Madison Square Garden’s “Magicworld” and performed in 72 countries, he was a master to say the least.
