I've never really tackled the Houdini Code and its controversy here on WILD ABOUT HARRY, but I wanted to put up something for this anniversary, so below is a full lecture by William V. Rauscher who wrote the book The Houdini Code Mystery and knew Arthur Ford personally. Rauscher has never spoken highly of Houdini, and he doesn't here, but he's a good man and an important magic historian, and what he has to say about Ford and events of 1929 is pretty interesting. Enjoy.
