The day Houdini died

On this date, in 1926……..Magician Harry Houdini died of complications from a ruptured appendix.  Eyewitnesses to an incident in Montreal gave rise to speculation that Houdini’s death was caused by a guy named J. Gordon Whitehead, who delivered multiple blows to Houdini’s abdomen to test Houdini’s claim that he was able to take any blow to the body above the waist without injury.  Didn’t work out so good for Houdini.

I like ol’ Harry.  His real name was Erik Weisz, and he was born in Hungary.  He told everyone, later in life, that he was born in Appleton, Wisconsin.  Appleton is just north of Milwaukee.  Tom Terrific’s adversary, “Crabby Appleton,” was named for the city.   Tom Terrific also had a dog named Manfred.  Harry’ Houdini’s father was named Manfred.  He father had a skin affliction…. whiteheads.  See?  Once again, just a series of dots, waiting to be connected……..  RIP HH aka EH…..
