Arthur Altman, who worked as the eastern account executive for Dawe's Laboratories, was known among the close-up magic fraternity for his skill with cards.

He developed an interest in magic through the influence of his brother, Al Altman, a talent scout for Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.

Arthur was appointed by Harry Houdini to succeed him as president of the S.A.M. Assembly in Worcester, Massachusetts in 1926.

As a sergeant during World War II, Arthur worked with the Intelligence branch of the U.S. Army.

He wrote a newspaper column on magic and made several film shorts.[1]

His son Jeff Altman carried on the magic tradition.[2]
