Edward Victor (1887 - April 17, 1964), born Edward Neuschwander in England to Swiss parents, was a professional magician who played top variety theaters in Europe and South Africa.
Early in his career he also took up Shadowgraphy.
In 1911, a trial week at St. George's Hall was extended to many months, setting the standard for his professional career. He was often seen on television (including a "What's My Line?" appearance which he was quickly recognized).
Victor was early member of the Magic Circle (which he was promoted to MIMC) and for over twenty years was president of the Merlin Magical Society. He also was the Blackpool Magicians' Club's first Honorary Life President.
