Bob Sharpe

Born May 9, 1896 St. Louis, Missouri
Died March 1, 1982 (age 85) Chicago, Illinois
Bob Sharpe (1896-1982) became a full time magician starting in 1934.

Sharpe attended St. Louis University. His night courses in business training led to insurance brokerage work, and he also found out about magic during those same years.

By 1934, he moved to New York to perform as a full time magician. Vaudeville was still in full force, there were plenty of club dates.

In 1947, he moved his home to Chicago where he remained the rest of his life.

His body was given for research.[1]
