|Born||Antone Francis Zamloch|
|Died||October 29 1932 (age 83) |
Zamloch started his magic career in the old world as assistant to various magicians, then by himself in the United States by 1869. He toured with his own two-hour show.
During the last years before his retirement, he confined himself to Vaudeville. In 1891, H. J. Burlingame called Zamloch "The Leading Conjuror of the Pacific Coast in his book "Leaves from a Conjurer's Scrapbook." Two of Zamloch's feature tricks were the table which raps in response to questions, and the drum which beat also to answer queries. They worked on the stage and were also placed in the aisles amongst the audience where the replies came just as instantly.
In August 1932, The Oakland Magic Circle of Oakland, California, held a "Zamloch Night." Zamloch was stricken with a heart attack a few months later despite appearing to be in excellent health for a man at his age.
