Walter and Pete

Welcome to the Magic Portal. .This is a site aimed at making it easier for those interested in magic to access resources on the Net. Due to the interest of our visitors, we have added a page of miscellaneous sites and I have now subjected you to my list of my top five favorite sites of the moment. This site is constantly in the construction phase and should be updated as new sites are found. If you would like to suggest a site or if you find one of my links down, please email me . (Click here to pull up your email program.) I also have a mail list if you would like to get links before they go onto the site or even some that are never posted.

On a recent trip to Omaha, I had the good fortune to have lunch with old friends, Walter Graham and Pete Petreshek. Pete is the former national librarian for the Society of American Magicians. When Walter was a young man, he performed as part of a duo. He did magic and his buddy did vent. His buddy was Johnny Carson (yep, that Johnny Carson). Walter also wrote a book on magician, David Abbott, which subsequently was purchased and rewritten by Teller. http://miraclefactory.net/zenstore/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1&products_id=116 .

The Magic Portal would like to express my eternal gratitude to the Magic Depot for providing the server space that allows this to exist!
