Schwartz tends to demand your attention by saying he is the reincarnation of Houdini. If he's pressed, he'll say that he is not really claiming to be Houdini resurrected, but the recipient of "inklings" and feelings, "faint echoes" of Houdini "being transmitted through me."
Noah first shared this info with me via the Wild About Harry Facebook page. He's clearly passionate about his quest, but I admit I could never quite puzzle together his theories about airships, C.M. Eddy, and the Superman Building. And his claim that he's the reincarnation of Houdini is, of course, hard to verify.
But now The Providence Journal has done the leg work and gave Noah an impressive front page spread in their Halloween print edition (above). Who knows? Maybe the extra attention will help solve the mystery.
