Houdini Magical Hall of Fame Museum Brochure, Circa 1980

Houdini Museum 1980-1

The Houdini Magical Hall of Fame, located in Niagara Falls, Canada, opened in 1968 and was destroyed by fire (suspected arson) in 1995. To make things even creepier, Houdini had specifically requested that his memorabilia and paraphernalia be burned and not sold for profit.

An earlier version of the brochure (below) has “Witchcraft” in the title instead of “Spiritualism.” I wonder if the change was prompted by the North American Satanic Panic.

You can see photos of the museum and related documents at the Houdini Magical Hall of Fame Facebook.
