Photos from The Official Houdini Séance 2016

Here are some photos from the Official Houdini Séance 2016, which this year was held at the Oriental Theater in Milwaukee. Looks like another great event, even if Houdini decided to once again stay away.

Keep an eye on David Saltman's The Houdini File for more about the discoveries he shared at the show. The Official Houdini Séance takes place annually in cities and communities around the world where Houdini had strong ties.

Thanks to Bill Radner and Robert Somerdin for the pics. 


  1. Thought your readers would like to know that we've discovered the ordination papers of Rabbi Mayer Samuel Weiss. No one believed they even existed, but they were buried in a stack of old records in Milwaukee!

    1. That's absolutely sensational! History making, in fact. Direct link here.

  2. David--as is his forte--is blazing a trail through uncharted early Houdini territory. The Daniel Boone of Houdini researchers. Now I really understand why the young Harry jumped onto a boxcar to Texas. The Weiss family was living in a large shack.
