LINK: Joe Lee – Houdini’s Forgotten Advance Man

Chuck Romano at My Magic Uncle has an excellent post about a little-known Houdini operative, Joe Lee, who worked as Houdini's advance man during the years of the full evening show.

Joe “Doc” Lee is a name Houdini enthusiasts rarely stumble upon. He isn’t mentioned in the master magician’s popular biographies, yet he did play an important role in Houdini’s success later in life. Lee, a highly effective ad man, utilized the media and promotional stunts to keep his clients in the public eye and bring people into the theaters.

    1. No, it's not. I only put Houdini-specific blogs there. But Chuck has had so many Houdini posts lately, it's almost become that!

    1. I've added it to my Houdini Links. It had been in my general magic links, but I took those away in my redesign.
