Julian Boehm, an insurance agent, a civic leader of Atlanta, Georgia, as known as the "Dean of Southern Magicians."

He had a distinguished career as a performer entertaining for civic groups and veterans' hospitals. He performed for President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the polio stricken children at Warm Springs on three consecutive Thanksgivings.[1]

He was S.A.M. Member Emeritus No. 179. of Parent Assembly No. 1. In 1904 he moved from New York City to Atlanta and was active in the Atlanta Society of Magicians. [2]

In 1935, Boehm was honored by the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce with a citation as "Atlanta's Outstanding Citizen" for that year.[3]

In February 1957, the Atlanta Society changed its name to the Julian V. Boehm SAM Assembly No. 30 (of which he served as president) in his honor.

He served as First International Vice President of The International Brotherhood of Magicians and declined the Presidency to care for his ailing wife. An Honorary Life Membership in IBM was conferred on him in 1959.

His photo can be seen at the Conjuring Arts' exhibit, "The Many Faces of Magic."[4]
