A. Gallardo Mendez (1893-1983), an English and French teacher in Mexico, was a semi-professional magician beginning in 1913 as Ynohtna (Anthony backwards).
Mendez specialized in handkerchiefs, cards, billiard-balls and mind-reading.
He made his first purchases when he was only a boy, from Roterberg. Under the name of Antonio, toured in the United States around 1917 with a carnival company and also with his own show.
During the war, Mendez was interpreter for the American forces.
