Charlie Miller (1909-August 13,1989 ) born Charles Earle in Indianapolis. He was an magician, author and renowned expert in pure sleight of hand magic.

During the 1930's Charlie was associated with Faucett Ross, Dai Vernon, Roland Hamblin, Manuel, Tommy Martin, Long Tack Sam and [[Max Malini]]. During World War II Charlie performed in USO and in night clubs.

Charlie Miller and Dai Vernon packed their cards and went to Wichita searching for Alan Kennedy who could deal cards out of the middle of the deck.

Some of his immense store of magical knowledge and wisdom has been recorded in the book "An Evening With Charlie Miller" written by Robert Parrish (1961).

He was editor of the long running series in Genii magazine called "Magicana" (which some day may get made into a book by Richard Kaufman!)

One of his trademarks was always signing his name thrice: Charlie Miller Charlie Miller Charlie Miller.

Miller was 80 when he passed away.
