Brotherhood of Magicians was founded by George E. Closson of Troy, New York in 1906 (most likely to promote his magic business). It was said to have several branches throughout the country.

It's official emblem contained the letters, "B. of M." in gold along with a spade, a diamond, a heart and a club, with a grinning, hollow-eyed skull in the center. Brotherhood Secrets, published monthly, was the official organ of the Brotherhood.

In 1918, the reins of the Brotherhood went over to "Mystic," G. E. Heath of Carroll, Iowa. The official organ was also replaced by The Magic Key at that time. It appears to not have lasted for much long afterward.

Charles J. Hagen, editor of Boy Magician, was the Master Representative for New York City.[1]
