George Waldo Heller, claimed to be Robert Heller's nephew, was a professional illusionist who toured Australia in 1889, 1891, & 1927.[1][2].

Little is known about George Waldo Heller. He immigrated to Australia in 1889 while touring with a group called Hiscock's Pavilion Company. He toured Australia, New Zealand, India and South Africa. When performing the magic became too much for him, he hired other magicians to tour and he presented moving pictures and also gave 'readings'. Later became a businessman and semi-pro magician.[3]

Heller featured in his early days the illusions "Bridal Chamber", "Gone", "Cannon and Boxes" and "Black Art", and with his wife Maudeena a version of Second sight, and Spirit Cabinet work. [4]

Angelo C. Palmer, the real brother of Robert Heller denied there was any relation to George Waldo Heller, whose real name was actually Robert Wezner.[5]
