William Berol was director of the Berol Course of Memory Training, and known as "The Man with 300,000 Facts in His Head".

Berol came to the United States in early youth and for a time appeared on the vaudeville stage.[1]

With his brothers, Felix and Max, performed an illusion they called "Askme". It is a large, transparent clock dial, which was taken to any part of the house, and no matter what question is asked it would answer instantaneously anything that could be answered by letters or figures.[2]
