From Magicpedia, courtesy of Genii Magazine:

Douglas Dexter (1878-1937), a schoolmaster by profession, was an accomplished magician and a member of the British Olympic fencing team. One of his specialty was the golf ball and bag effect which baffled many professionals at the time. He produced the "Riddle of the Sands Illusion" at The Magic Circle Grand Seance in 1934. He often performed at Maskelyne's Theatre. He was awarded the Gold Star by the Magic Circle.
