HALLOWEEN WITH HOUDINI IN HARMON
On Halloween, in 1922, the world-famous magician Harry Houdini gave what
he called a “pseudo séance” in the Harmon home of his friend,
journalist and social reformer Sophie Irene Loeb. He used the word
“pseudo” when he recalled the incident in his book Magician Among Spirits,
because he was famous not only for astounding feats of magic, but also
for debunking the spiritualists, mediums and seers who used tricks to
fool credulous people into believing they could actually communicate
with the dead. READ MORE HERE https://crotonhistory.org/2013/10/31/halloween-with-houdini-in-harmon/
