Biography

After a career as an oil salesman and the death of his wife, Allerton took up magic. He eventually started performing close-up magic in nightclubs. He worked for many years at the Ambassador East Hotel Pump Room in Chicago as well as the House of Murphy in Hollywood and the Hotel Pierre in New York City.

He was one of the few magicians at the time to work exclusively in the close-up arena. One of his features was performing the Vanishing Bird Cage close up.
