Marshall, Jay
(1919 - 2005)
James "Jay" Marshall who was also nicknamed "Jasper," invented and marketed the "Jaspernese Rope Tie" in 1939. During World War II, Marshall was "island-hopping" in the Pacific to entertain military personnel in USO shows. He became tired of taking his elaborate ventriloquist's dummy called Henry with him, so he decided to use a white glove and some bunny ears to turn his left hand into his dummy which he called "Lefty." In 1955, Marshall married Frances Ireland, proprietress of the Ireland Magic, a Chicago magic store bequeathed to her at the death of her previous husband, magician L.L. Ireland. They reopened the store as Magic Inc. and built it into an active publishing house and center of magic culture for Chicago.
