Alexander (1880-1954), born Claude Alexander Conlin, was a stage magician, billing himself as "The Man Who Knows", that specialized in Mentalism and psychic reading acts. He dressed in Oriental style robes and a feathered turban, and often used a crystal ball as a prop.
In addition to performing, he also worked privately for clients, giving readings. He was the author of several pitch books and New Thought pamphlets, as well as texts for stage performers. His stage name was "Alexander," and as an author he wrote under the name "C. Alexander." Retired in 1924 at the age of 43 and was married over 7 times.
