Dr. William Endlich (1888-1954), a dentist and magician, helped form an IBM Ring in Philadelphia, the Keystone State Federation, and M.A.E.S.[1]


The son of a dentist, he graduated from the dental school of the Medico-Chirurgical College and practiced in Philadelphia and Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Interested in magic from early boyhood, he worked professionally as an individual, as the straight man of a comedy team, and with the one time popular minstrels.

He was a partner in the Philadelphia Magic Shop and in 1927 he helped organize an IBM Ring in Philadelphia.

Endlich was a great factor in organizing the Keystone State Federation of IBM Rings, an organization that held eight State Conventions.

In 1943, he also helped form the Magicians Alliance of Eastern States, which he served as Secretary-Treasurer until his death.[2]

By 1946, he was residing in Baltimore, employed by the Davison Chemical Co.[3]
