Consideration centenarians or anybody who is aware of a centenarian!
In the course of the World Huge Houdini Birthday Celebration final month, the subject got here up as as to if 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 mathematics is shifting towards us.
Nonetheless, I feel there’s nonetheless probability there are some centenarians on the market who noticed Houdini. It’s because within the final years of his life, when he was touring together with his 3 Exhibits in One in 1925-26, Houdini made a follow of performing particular matinees for audiences made up completely of kids. He did this in each metropolis he performed. That is a whole lot of children! So I feel it is completely potential a number of of those viewers members might nonetheless be with us.
So in case you have a mum or dad or grandparent who was round in 1925-26, possibly ask them in the event that they noticed Houdini? In the event that they did, please contact me
. It will be nice to find and have a good time anybody who holds a reminiscence of the true Houdini whereas we nonetheless have the prospect to take action.
