The Margery Files

I have been hearing some very nice things about you lately, so I am glad to able to say I know "The Great Houdini".

- Mina Crandon aka "Margery"

During the week of January 13, 2013 WILD ABOUT HARRY was given a very special peak inside the private Libbet Crandon de Malamud Collection by Anna Thurlow, the great granddaughter of Mina Crandon a.k.a. "Margery the Medium." Anna graciously allowed me to share several original and unique items from her family archive which I rolled out in a series called The Margery Files.

These artifacts have only ever been seen by a select handful of people, and have certainly never been posted on the Internet. Some give new insight into the complicated relationship between Houdini and Margery. Others are just amazing to see in the light of 2013!

Below are links to each of the seven installments  Enjoy the journey, because what Anna showed us was WILD enough to raise the dead!
