He began performing as a young man in the United States, but achieved success first in England. Raymond played in the Vaudeville circuits and in 1910 he made a tour of Australia, spending considerable time in the Far East. He also visited Japan, China, Manila and Hawaii.

One act that Raymond was known for was his "Mytempsicosis — fastest trunk escape in the world", performed with his wife, Lipzka.

He was sponsored into the S.A.M. by Houdini in 1921.[1]
