Tom Harris (c.1894-1970), a member of the Magic Circle (M.M.C.), was known as the magical schoolmaster.[1][2]

Biography

As a member of the original Flying Sorcerers, he entertained American audiences at the combined IBM/SAM convention in 1950.

His act was performed in a mock-aggressive manner, abusing his audiences and helpers as he blamed them for everything that went wrong, in a purposely exaggerated form of his native Derby accent.

His friend Will Goldston left Harris his magical library.
