He was also known as "Professor Sesrad" and "Sir Edward St. Ra-Diem" and was a companion of Bess Houdini after Houdini's death.[4]

Saint was the primary driving force behind the Houdini Seances and conducted them himself atop the Knickerbocker Hotel just off Hollywood Boulevard for over 10 years until Bess finally decided to put an end them in 1936.

He was a charter member of the IBM Ring 21 in Hollywood, California.[5]

A good friend of Genii's Editor, William Larsen, Sr., he wrote a monthly column, "Thru The Monocle", for a number of years.[6][7]
