Broken Wand Ceremony for Ron Cartlidge

A broken wand ceremony will be held for Ron Cartlidge today at 7:00 PM Central Time. Ron passed away on December 12 at age 82. The event will be streamed on YouTube. I've embedded the stream below, but you can also watch live on YouTube itself.

We celebrate the life of Ron Cartlidge with a broken wand ceremony. Ron was a Houdini expert who wrote Houdini’s Texas Tours 1916 & 1923. He was a strong proponent of magic in Texas, lending his energy to the Austin Chapter of the Society of American Magicians and was responsible for reviving the Austin Magic Auction. Ron was a member of the I.B.M., The Magic Circle, and a Life Member of the S.A.M.

If you are in the Austin area and wish to attend in person, they can accommodate about 20 people at the Fantastic Magic Center in Georgetown Texas. You must RSVP by emailing If you wish to speak, but cannot attend in person, you can join the event through Zoom. Register HERE
