Hello - my name is Bob and I'm new to this forum. I'm interested in finding where the magicians from the 1800s - 1950s / '60s lived at and was wondering if anyone out there could help me out with August Roterberg's Pasadena, Ca. address
and grave site location? Thank you.

The August Roterberg I know of was from Chicago early 1900's.

Hello Hugmagic
I read somewhere on this forum that when he retired he and his wife moved to Pasadena from Chicago, where he remained until his death. But I've been unable to find any listings for him. I'll keep trying.
Take care
Bob

I recently wrote to the Pasadena Library with this same question and received a reply the other day. According to his obituary in the Pasadena Star Newspaper, Roterberg died at his home - 789 MAGNOLIA AVENUE, PASADENA, CA. He had lived there for a year, having moved from Chicago.

Interesting. This must have been the late 1920's or early 1930's. After Halton and Jansen split from him and then he sold to Paine.

What year was the obituary?

I appreciate the update.

The obituary listed in the Pasadena Star newspaper on September 24, 1928, page 92, col.6 -
AUGUST ROTERBERG
August Roterberg passed away last evening at his home, 789 Magnolia Avenue. He was a native of Hamburg, Germany, and had been a resident here for the last year, coming from Chicago, Ill. He is survived by his widow, Anna Roterberg; a son, Fred R. Roterberg, and daughter, Mrs. Harriet Parker.
Funeral services will be held at the Chapel of Ives and Warren Company, (funeral home), at 2 o'clock tomorrow afternoon and burial will be private.

Now, if I can just find out where he's buried.
