The Milbourne Christopher Foundation was established by Maurine Christopher in 1989, and was created to perpetuate the memory of her husband and his lifelong interest in encouraging excellence, originality, and leadership in the art of magic. The award categories reflect Milbourne Christopher’s own diversified career. Among his many works, Christopher wrote Houdini: The Untold Story (1969).
The 2016 Milbourne Christopher Awards will be held at 6:00 PM on June 25 at the Garde Arts Center, 325 State Street, New London, Connecticut. Tickets can be purchased here.
