LINK: Harry Houdini and Abraham Lincoln

The Weekly View has an excellent article by Al Hunter about Houdini's interest in Abraham Lincoln. This is from last year, but I only just discovered it now. It's well researched and a good read, so click the headline above and enjoy.



  1. Very interesting article. Walt Disney also had a great admiration for Lincoln. Obviously, many did and do, but Houdini and Disney were uniquely qualified to accomplish feats most of the world would've thought impossible, and they persisted against all odds. Seems natural they would identify with and admire Lincoln in a big way.
