Notes
From Magicpedia, courtesy of Genii Magazine:

Ed Reno (1861-1949) performed as "Reno the Great" and "Professor Reno" for several decades throughout the United States and the world billing himself as "King of Conjurers". At one time with William B. Alvord, he organized a magical circus (using eighteen wagons) that toured for eight years. He then went on to Chautauqua for twenty-three years. He settled in Kankakee, Illinois and lived there the last fifty years of his life. His wife performed as Mme. Reno, "The Empress of Magic."Reno was affectionately known to hundreds of young magicians as "Uncle Ed". Ed Reno was an honorary life member of the I. B. M. and was accorded the title "dean of American magicians." An extensive biography, "Ed Reno and His Magic" appeared in the March and April 1944 issues of The Linking Ring.
