Young Saint

Here is a remarkable photo of Dr. Edward Saint. This comes from George Martin, a vintage camera collector, who discovered this while rummaging through some old photos. This shows Saint in his "Professor Sesrad" stage costume. It may have been in this guise that he first met Bess Houdini at Playland in Rye Beach, New York in 1930. The rest is history.

Thank you George for allowing me to share your find here on WILD ABOUT HARRY.

  1. Business manager for Mrs. Harry Houdini. You can see why Bess needed Saint's company: manager, lover, confidant.
