A member of the I. B. M., Hollywood Mystic 27[1], he wrote a column in the first volume of Genii called Scattered Shots.

Gunn was the fist American performer to do television act in magic at the KHJ Don Lee Station. [2]

Gunn was a good friend of Caryl Fleming. When Fleming passed away, he bought his collection of rare magic and open his Magician's Supply Co. store.[3]
