Easley, Bert
(1904-1987) American comedy magician, acrobat and magic dealer. His gift for specialty dancing led him to develop "The Lean", a trick in which the feet remain flat on the floor while the body leans forward until the performer is almost in a prone position, seemingly without natural support. Until 1975, he operated Bert Easley's Fun Shop in Phoenix, Arizona. Published Doing Magic for Youngsters in 1948.
 
Eck, Johnny
(1911-1991) American performer (real name John Eckhardt) who was born with a physical condition that made him appear as if his body had been cut off at the waist. He exhibited himself in freak shows as a Living Half-Man for many years, and appeared in the classic Tod Browning horror film Freaks (1932). With his twin brother Robert, who looked identical to Johnny except that his body was normal, he performed a strange but comical magic routine in which a man (Robert) would enter a cabinet and be sawed in two pieces by the magician. When the cabinet was opened, the legs jumped out of the cabinet and were chased around the stage by the top half of the man (Johnny), who would even run up the theater aisle propelled by his arms. The act was featured for six months in Rajah Raboid's "Mysteries of 1937" stage show. Visit Johnny Eck's grave. Johnny is buried alongside his twin brother.

Epstein, Adam
(1820-1869) Successful Polish magician who toured extensively throughout Europe in the mid-1800's. One of the first magicians to travel with his own independent show, rather than as a part of a larger circus or theatrical troupe. Died performing the dangerous Bullet Catching Act; his wand, used to ram home the balls in the rifle barrel, broke inside the gun and he was killed by wand shards.
 
Evanion, Henry
(1832-1905) British magician and major magic ephemera collector. Birth name was Henry Evans, but leagally changed his name to Henry Evanion in 1858. Though he had a career as a performing magician, appearing variously as "Mr. Evans" "Evan Ion" and "Evanion" between 1849 and 1880, he is most known for his enormous collection of magicians' playbills. He sold part of this collection to the British Museum in 1885 and the other part to Harry Houdini in 1905. This poster is circa 1860.

(b.?) Glamorous Canadian-born female magician who had a successful stage and nightclub career from the 1950s into the 1980s. One of the first women to perform dove magic.
