Celebrating Women In Magic...
With March 8 being International Women's Day, we are celebrating Women In Magic.
Specifically, the spotlight is on Adelaide Herrmann, known as the Queen of Magic.
One of the most successful female magical performers, she worked for many years
as the chief assistant to her husband, Alexander Herrmann.
But his death in 1896 pushed her into a magic career of her own.
