I don't think she's nervous at all. It's part of her presentation that she seems to be struggling to get the cards right. That's more impressive than just rattling off "Your cards are 4H, 8D, KC, etc." without any effort at all.

Let us not forget Lulu Hearst, The Famous Georgia Magnet.

Annie Abbott was The Little Georgia Magnet. Lulu Hurst was The Georgia Wonder. No one was The Famous Georgia Magnet.

Many women have made great contributions to the art of magic. As far as "groundbreaking" contributions go, I feel sure that over 99% of male magicians have none of those on their resume.

Wow, lots of names but no creditionals being listed. Not saying there isn't any but could we list what contributions they contributed instead of just names. For example; the girl who was first to pull a hanky from her !@#$%^. There has to more than that as contributions to the magic community? In other words, lets list not just names, but what exactly they have contributed that was unique and useful to the growth of magic.
Keep your dreams alive. Understand to achieve anything requires faith and belief in yourself, vision, hard work, determination, and dedication. Remember all things are possible for those who believe.

Heqq! Bill!!!

I read through this entire thread looking for Dell O'Dell! I never knew her, but, from everything I've heard, she was a real professional!

My friend, Michael CLAXTON, has just written and published a book on her life. She was a real credit to the profession.

At one point, she had at least 3 men working for her as assistants. No one ever saw them!

She was so busy, that she had 3 sets of props. Jay Marshall, in his younger days, was one of the assistants.

She would often have 3 gigs in one evening. Jay's job was to go to a club, set her props, watch her work, and, when she left for her second of three gigs, pack her props, and, go home. I can't remember the other two men. One was a "retired" old pro.

BTW, Suzy Wandas, whom I met in the '60s, at Abbott's GTG, was another fine performer. She was most talented, and the "Wandas Sisters" were headliners in Europe.

While this is a 3-year-old thread, International Women's Day 2018 just happened, so I would like to nominate American chemist Stephanie Louise Kwolek (July 31, 1923 to June 18, 2014), who was not a magician. She did, however invent Kevlar, and considering how many effects are performed by many thousands of magicians using In******* Th****, and ITRs and Yigal Mesika's Loops, etc., she deserves to be on this list.
