Professor Harry Woodley – Appearing on his doorstep

Sunday 19th January 2014

I did a show today for a bunch of four year olds in the local village hall less than half a mile away which was a lot of fun with extremely well behaved mums and dads present.

I was interested to learn that the birthday child’s family lived next door to the late Professor Harry Woodley who was a very early member of the Associated Wizards of the South and its president in 1924, 1931 and again in 1970 covering the Diamond Jubilee of the Society. I have a photo of early members of the AWS including Harry Woodley with Houdini, an honorary member, on the docks in Soutampton taken in 1913 before his return to the United States.
