From Magicpedia, courtesy of Genii Magazine:

Walter B. Graham (1923-2018) was a printer and semi-professional magician performing comedy magic for over seven decades.
Graham enlisted in the Navy in November of 1942, only months after he enrolled at the University of Omaha. When Graham got out of the Navy in 1946, he went back to college for a year. He became an SAM member in 1942 attending the Omaha Magical Society SAM Assembly No. 7 along with Johnny Carson. After earning his BA in journalism in 1947, he got a staff job at a radio station, still continuing to do magic shows.

Graham was president of his own firm "Modern Litho Inc." which published reproductions of many old books. He sold the company in 1989. Graham produced the "Magic Collectors Reprint Series", a quarterly subscription series that offered reprints (via lithography) of scarce and desirable pieces of magic history. He is a longtime member of the Magic Collectors' Association.
