Society of Canadian Magicians “Levitator” from May/June 1974

If you aren't following Neil McNally's blog, The Doug Henning Project, I encourage you to do so.  He regularly updates on fascinating nuggets from Doug's life.

On March 8th, he published some images from Richard Sherry from the Society of Canadian Magicians publication “Levitator” May/June 1974 “Magic Show” Article.

A nice trip down memory lane!

Broken wand: Larry Silverman

Updated at 10:30am to add:
The editor of the Broken Wand in the IBM’s The Linking Ring would like to pay tribute Larry Silverman. If you know any information about him to include in the obituary (occupation, interest in magic, accomplishments, etc.), please send them to Dennis Schick at crylds [at] att [dot] net.

From the John Giordmaine tribute site:
We noted, with sadness, the passing of Larry Silverman on February 12th, 2015. He was 85. Former President of the long defunct Society of Canadian Magicians, Larry encouraged this site by sharing his rare video tape of the CBC TV "Telescope" tribute to Johnny; as well as allowing me to unearth back issues boxed up in his basement of the SCM's "Levitator" with key articles about Johnny. Our condolences to his family.

From Legacy:
Peacefully in his 85th year and in the presence of his family on Thursday, February 12, 2015 at North York General Hospital. Beloved husband of the late Myrna Silverman (Greenberg) and best friend and companion of Betty Shannon. Loving father and father-in-law to Carol and Lori and David. Devoted and much adored grandfather to Jayme, Cory and Jesse. -

With thanks to The Magic Demon for letting me know.

The Society of Canadian Magicians

Back in the Spring of 2011, I posted about a Facebook page David Donoghue had set up for remembering the Society of Canadian Magicians (SCM).  However, that page no longer appears functional.

Does anyone know what happened to it?

Ariel Frailich recently posted about the convention.  It would be nice if the memories could all be collected in one place.

Remembering the Society of Canadian Magicians

Do you remember the Society of Canadian Magicians (SCM)?  If so, go on over the the Facebook page David Donoghue has set up for remembering the SCM.  There is a dearth of information on the internet about the SCM.  MagicPedia has only two lines on the organization.

Help document the history of the organization by contributing to the discussions or adding to the collection of online photos.
