#15 Harry Houdini

Harry Houdini was the most popular illusionist of the first part of the 20th Century. After his mother died he became obsessed with spiritualism and the idea of contacting her. He found that most “mystics and spiritualists” were frauds and went on to debunk them. Houdini died on Halloween in Detroit, MI in 1926 from a blow to the stomach. Some thought it was a hoax and that he might someday return. Available in the ETSY Store.
