Who's idea was it? Bess?

Any info on who made it?

Who paid for it? The Society of American Magicians or the Houdini family or estate?

How much?

When was it placed there?

Where would all this info be documented?



Thanks
Dorothy Dietrich & Dick Brookz

I have these same questions, but I don't have answers. If you look at (clear) footage of Houdini's funeral, there is no SAM mosaic on the exedra (also no bust). I think the mosaic appeared with the bust in 1927. Who's idea was it? Like I said, I have that same question. No answer.
