Ray - I took the photo of Copperfield at the Beverly Hilton. David's parents, the Caveneys and one other, maybe Ali Bongo were seated at the table. David told me it was one of his favorite photos.


Missing on your list of people who where sitting at the table are Max Maven and Abb Dickson.

It's a great picture.

I was at the Magic Hands convention that Gallagher mentioned above and I remember Bob Brown's lecture on publicity. He would offer to buy hundreds of copies of a magazine if the magazine did a full story on him and especially have him on the cover.

Pete mentions him doing free shows in hotels. The trick he did to "prove his worth" was Francis Carlyle's Homing Card.

Magic Hands conventions were more than just conventions, they were events. There were two Bob Browns in magic. The other Bob worked for Magic Inc.



I was fortunate to know BOTH Bobs! I lectured in Bob's living room in Sacramento in '85. He was an excellent host!

I met the 'other' Bob at Magic Inc. We both worked a "convention" of the "Professionals Against Confidence Crime" (the "bunco squad!). Bob #2 had had a magic shop in Davenport Iowa.

I THINK that I remember, a THIRD, Bob Brown, but, can't recall where I met him.
