American magician and author, Don Alan was well known for his technical excellence and relaxed attitude in performing close-up magic.

He was the host of the 1960's TV program "Don Alan's Magic Ranch" in the 1960's, but he actually had a short-lived TV magic show (called "Magic HQ") that aired regionally about 10 years prior. He was also featured as "Sir Dono" on the popular "Mary Hartline's Magic Circus" TV show in the late 1950's. After his TV show was cancelled, he continued to make many guest appearances on talk shows, inlcuding "The Mike Douglas Show", "The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson", and "The Dick Cavett Show".

An inventive and clever card magician, he popularized the Invisible Deck trick by performing it numerous times on "The Tonight Show".
