His first public performance was at age 20, in 1898, as 'Carl Devo' c1898-1907, initially with a Black Art show.
He managed the Conjuring, Theatrical, and Entertainment Departments at Gamage's 1905-14. Founded The Magicians' Club in 1911, serving as Treasurer throughout ,but running it as a one-man self-serving club, until it passed into limbo in WW II.
