Our great friend Eric Colleary, Cline Curator of Theatre & Performing Arts collections at the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas in Austin, is the guest on Scott Wells The Magic Word Podcast. In the YouTube version, embedded below, Eric shares some of the treasures from their collection, including Houdini's own copy of The Discovery of Witchcraft and the breakfront bookcase that started it all! This is a great talk so enjoy.
After a fifteen-month closure due to Covid, The Harry Ransom Center will reopen to researchers on July 12. For more information visit their official website.
Below are links to a few of the topics discussed by Eric and Scott.
