I'm looking for people who worked for magic dealers during the 1950's and 1960's (or even before!!!!).

If you worked for National Magic, Harry Stanley, Kanter's, Tannen's, Magic, Inc., Golden Gate Magic, Joe Berg, or any other magic dealer or manufacturer of that time, please let me know.

I have questions for you.

Ken Brooke worked for Harry Stanley and when Ken went on his own Frank Farrow worked for him. Both Dealers sent out to home workers of which I was one of many.

I have been told that Bill Powell (Burtini) spun many of the cups that Stanley (and Davenport) sold.

Harry Stanley also had a set of cups that look exactly like P&L cups. I know that P&L manufactured for other dealers. Do you know whether Stanley got these cups from P&L or if he had Burtini make them?

There was a fairly large chain of magic shops in the Colorado Region, Zeezo's Magic Castle that was doing well. Ken Simmons (amazing card guy prolific author also wrote the original scotch and soda books) Owned the Zeezo's in colorado springs at one time. I worked in Zeezo's in Pueblo Colorado as a teen. I'm not sure but I think my buddy Allan Hayden may have worked one in Denver as well way back when. Zeezo's currently has only one shop now in Co Spgs. It was owned by a very successful clown and magician Larry Campbell (Zeezo).
