Don't worry, we haven't forgotten Bess

Yes, I know most sources say today, January 22, is Bess Houdini's birthday. But there's always been a question mark as to whether it's the 22nd or 23rd. In the past we've celebrated on both days, just to safe. But this year our Bessie birthday post will be tomorrow, January 23, and in that post I will share proof that Bess celebrated her birthday on the 23rd.

It's another gem from our amazing Hinson Endowment, so come on back tomorrow for Bessie's big day.


  1. That would make Bess 139 tomorrow. Tomorrow also happens to be my day--a mere 49.

    1. I have her at 138 tomorrow. Born 1876. But I believe there are sources that say 1875, but I've always gone with '76.

      You share Bess' birthday! Thanks cool. :)

    1. Thanks John. Looking forward to sharing your "proof" tomorrow. :)
