George "Duke" Corregan (1897-1971) was a semi-profession club performer.
Corregan was charter member of Boston Assembly No. 9, he was an owner, operator and president of Purdy Photographers in Boson. 
He produced Assembly No. 9's official bulletin "The Barnstormer" and was managing editor for many years. For 20 years, he ran a humorous personal-interest column, headed as "Dear Uncle Koko, Esq." It was years before members realized that the initials of the heading spelled out a clue to the unknown author, "D-U-K-E".
Corregan contributed his magical ideas to the Sphinx. His Four Ace Trick, published in 1922 was a favorite of Ted Annemann. He also marketed "Be a Human Calendar" and "Unkle Koko's Kloryphyll Kard Trick". He authored a column "Spilling the Beans" in The Seven Circles in the 1930s.
