How are you coming with your plans to show something related to our February theme, Dai Vernon, a.k.a. “The Professor?”
What was once in his mind that is now in yours?
Besides presenting Vernon-rooted magic, I hope you will share a story or some factoid about Vernon.
Don’t know any?
In that case, take advantage of the incredible resource available exclusively to IBM members, namely Ask Alexander.
Ask Alexander is an electronic archive containing all copies of The Linking Ring dating back to its first issued published in 1922. This valuable resource contains over two-million pages searchable by key words, including names of individuals, magic effects, and dates.
According to Ask Alexander, Dai Vernon is mentioned in over 1000 different issues of The Linking Ring. Surely you can find a little Vernon tidbit to share with us.
