I found the following in Henry Hay's "The Amateur Magician's Handbook":

Hugard, Jean (John Gerard Rodney Boyce, 1872-1959), American performer and writer, of Australian origin. Prolific contributer to magical literature.

The book only has the following about Braue:

Braue, Frederick. Card manipulator and writer. See Hugard.

I know it's not a lot, but that's all I could recall seeing in the books I have.

Here is some information from the "magicians of old" section here at the Café.

A similar discussion was held here at talkmagic
