Stuart Cramer (1911-2003), even though graduated with a law degree from Western Reserve University in 1936, was a professional magician nearly all of his life.
Cramer returned to Cleveland where he grew up after serving in the Navy in World War II and used it as a base throughout his long performing career.
He performed on a Cleveland television station in 1947, with a twice-weekly ten-minute live-audience kid show. He created "Professor Nemo," a Saturday morning magical-cowboy character who resided two years at WNBK-TY. He continued in TV into the 1960s. He once did a daily weather report, presenting trick every day, as "Mr. Meriweather" for three years.
