Last year the MCord received a large bequest of magic memorabilia, including many items related to Houdini. "It’s the second-largest collection of Houdini material held in a public institution," said David Ben, artistic director of Magicana, who served as an adviser to the museum.
The McCord Museum is housed in the former McGill University Student Union building where Houdini lectured during his ill-fated visit to Montreal in October 1926.
