History of The Houdini Club

The Houdini Club of Wisconsin was founded in 1938 by three corresponding magical devotees, who wanted to have a state-wide magic club with the potential for an occasional get-together. The club would be linked by means of a newsletter-The Houdini Gram, with periodical distributions and by a yearly get-together. This new club was built on the existing membership of another organization called, The Houdini Club, which was founded in 1915.

Of all the magicians, why name a club after Houdini? It seemed logical to the founders that such a great organization should be named after one of the greatest magicians of all time, Harry Houdini. Harry lived for a time in Appleton, Wisconsin.

The Houdini Club has grown and it includes 130 members, mostly throughout Wisconsin as well as fifteen other states and Canada!
