|Born||Ernest John Caddick|
|Died||November 1973 |
Ernesti (?-1973) was known as the Clown Magician in the Bainbridge Island, Washington area.
A member of the Seattle Magic Ring #59, he won a P.C.A.M. Trophy for comedy at the 1936 convention in Seattle.
In 1954 he was ill and bed-ridden, possibly to never walk again. But four years later he road a bike blindfolded as a feature attraction celebrating the revitalizing of Winslow, Washington. 
In 1970, he produced the independent journal Swami Speaks, despite being only able to use one hand and partially blind.
He held IBM number 23872 when the Linking Ring reported his death.
