The search is on for somebody who noticed Houdini

Consideration centenarians or anybody who is aware of a centenarian!

Throughout the World Extensive Houdini Birthday Celebration final month, the subject got here up as as to whether there's nonetheless anybody alive who met or noticed Houdini. June Horowitz, who handed away in 2018 on the age of 104, was the final individual I used to be conscious of. And with Houdini being useless for almost 98 years, the maths is shifting towards us.

Nevertheless, I believe there's nonetheless a very good probability there are some centenarians on the market who noticed Houdini. It is because within the final years of his life, when he was touring along with his 3 Reveals in One in 1925-26, Houdini made a apply of performing particular matinees for audiences made up fully of youngsters. He did this in each metropolis he performed. That is quite a lot of children! So I believe it is fully attainable a number of of those viewers members might nonetheless be with us.

So when you have a mum or dad or grandparent who was round in 1925-26, perhaps ask them in the event that they noticed Houdini? In the event that they did, please contact me. It could be nice to find and have a good time anybody who holds a reminiscence of the actual Houdini whereas we nonetheless have the prospect to take action.
