U.F. Grant (January 12, 1901- March 1, 1978) born Ulysses Frederick Grant in Millerton, New York. Also known as "Gen", he was a magic dealer and inventor. Grant started in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, where he created his first tricks. Later he opened a store in New York City and eventually settled in Columbus, Ohio.

In 1944, he partnered with R.N. Menge creating a line of products known as "Grant and Menge" or "G. & M.". The partnership only lasted a year and they ended up becoming rivals.

Don Tanner wrote directions for and illustrated many of the items marketed by the Grant company.

Grant was a member of the IBM, SAM, the Order of Merlin, and the Columbus Magic Club Ring 7.
