Paul Gretzinger (1939-2000) entertained audiences for fifty years throughout the Midwest with comedy and sleight-of-hand as a stage magician and as a clown. He performed as Ronald McDonald for seven years, touring his magic act and making personal appearances throughout Ohio, Indiana and Michigan.
Gretzinger's interest in magic began at the age of 10, taking classes in magic and dramatics at the old Toledo Boy's Club. After working as a high school English teacher in his early twenties, he started a performing career.
