Biography

In the 1940s, Menge was owner of the Wizard's Workshop in Hot Springs, Arkansas. In addition to his mail order business, he organized "Norman's Wizard's Club" and sent out a newsletter called Norman's News.

He later moved to Columbus, Ohio, to join U. F. Grant producing items under the name "G & M".

Menge would eventually go his own way in 1945 opening another magic workshop in Columbus.[1][2]
