Mohala (?-1953), born Mary Robinson, was the wife of Walter Edwin Floyd who performed a second sight act as "The Floyds".

Biography

"Mohala, the radio mystic" was a phrase coined by her husband. They actively performed magic for several decades starting in the early 1900s. Her billings would read: "Wonderful mind reading tests that far surpass anything heretofore attempted along that line."

The Floyds married early in Walter's career and owed a great deal of success to Mary. They developed a second sight act and advertising would show Mohalo blindfolded performing calculations as Walter wrote numbers called by members of the audience.

She was elected into the Society of American Magicians Hall of Fame with her husband.[1][2][3]
