His specialty was in mentalism and had a vast knowledge of all magic art. Magic publications through the years printed his contributions. [1]

He was confined to a wheelchair almost all his life due to a back injury suffered in his youth.

During the latter years of his life he was at work compiling a book on magic called the Conclave of Magic. It was not completed before he passed away but was published in February 1965 issue of the Linking Ring.[2]
