Houdini and the Mooser sisters

Here's a nice article from the November 6, 1965 San Mateo Times about the original Houdini Nuts, Minnie and Hattie Mooser.

In recent years there has been speculation about a possible romance between Houdini and Hattie. You can read more about that at Dean Carnegie's The Magic Detective. Dean also notes that the Moosers collection wound up in The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life at the Bancroft Library University of California Berkley.

  1. Very interesting. Also intriguing to see that well-known portrait of Houdini in such a large format. I wonder if it was used for advertising or is just a large reproduction of that photo.
