Charles J. Hagen (1877 - 1925) was editor of two magical periodicals which he founded, The Boy Magician and The American Magician, and was the sole owner of the Presto Publishing Company

Hagen migrated to the United States in 1894. He was married to Frances Chornberger and had three sons, Joseph John, Carl Otto and James, and two daughters, Freda and Elizabeth.

Under the alias "The Fakir of Blackwells" (a name he coined from that of an Island) he contributed articles to various magical journals.

He was an ardent collector (particularly of wands), gave himself the title, "A REAL. Magic Bug," which appeared on all his letterheads which also carried the names of practically every known magical organization up to a certain time, in all of which he held membership.
