I've always wondered if the great Harry Houdini ever belonged to a group of people, organization or perhaps even a secret society of individuals that he found or shared his secrets with. It would really be interesting to talk to someone today that could have been affiliated with him in that way during his time. If he didn't belong to any kind of group then he was just a genius, a true master of the art of deception.

In the book "Lily Dale the town that talks to the dead" by Christine Wicker, there is a passage which dicusses Harry Houdini frequently visiting the town and learning some of his best secrets from the people there. It wasn't until he had a falling out that he stopped going there.

They were Super Secret Agents fighting Al Capone and the Red Menace !! His magic was real, and They wore costumes and had awesome steam powered computers and atomic rayguns !!!

LMFAO!!!


Seriously Mr. Morrison, I dont think he was ever part of a secret society. May I ask what inspired you to think this?
