- Mina Crandon aka "Margery"
This will be a very special week here at WILD ABOUT HARRY. Anna Thurlow, the great granddaughter of Mina Crandon aka "Margery the Medium", has graciously allowed me to share several original and unique items related to Houdini and Margery from her own private family archives -- the Libbet Crandon de Malamud Collection -- or what I'm calling, The Margery Files.
These items 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! It's going to be quite a week, and I'm honored and thrilled that Anna has chosen my blog to share these treasures with the magic world.
So hold onto your ectoplasm, because what Anna and I have to share is Wild enough to raise the dead!
