Tom Chislett, a bank official by profession, was a semi-professional magician.

A member of the Magic Circle (London), Order of Magi (Manchester), Sheffield Circle of Magicians (Sheffield) and the British Ring of the IBM, Chislett had a remarkably wide knowledge of the magic craft with a special interest in mentalism. [1]

He might fittingly be described as the British David P. Abbott (whom he corresponded with), since he had his home gimmicked to enable him to perform apparent miracles.[2]
