I just received this sad news email:

From Meir Yedid:

Ron MacMillan (September 20, 1932-January 26, 2005) died on Jan. 26 at the
age of 72. MacMillan was considered to be one of the first and best
manipulators to ever come out of England. In 1957 he won the British Shield
competition and in 1961 he took second place in the Manipulation category at
FISM. His extremely difficult routines with coins and billiard balls were
published in his two books "Symphony Of The Spheres" and "Modern Art Of Coin
Manipulation." In 1991 he released a lecture video where he taught his
entire act. But more than just a magician MacMillan was a central figure in
magic and cultivated the magic scene in London. The magic shop he
established in 1962 and his International Magic Convention, which will be
celebrating it's 35th anniversary this year, have both helped introduce
magicians from around the world to British audiences and jump start the
careers of many magicians. He was perhaps the most loved and respected man
in magic.(1/27)
