Ken Krenzel (1926-2012) was a well known as a leading exponent of expert sleight-of-hand with cards.[1]

He was born and raised in the Lower East Side of New York City where he pursued the study of psychology in college and eventually earned a Ph.D. As a youngster, he became a charter member of F.A.M.E. (Future American Magical Entertainers).

Krenzel has published material in various magic journals: The Gen, Genii, M-U-M (where he was a regular columnist), Hugard's Magic Monthly, Phoenix, Hierophant, Kabbala, Epilogue, New Jinx, Apocalypse, and the Minotaur.

Harry Lorayne wrote in The Card Classics of Ken Krenzel (1978): "When Ken Krenzel performed the material in this book for me I knew then and there how good it was, and what a great contribution it'd be to the art I love - card magic".
