Audley Walsh (1894-1957) was a police officer and expert on gambling fraud. He had a large collection of gimmicked gambling apparatus.


During World War II, he served the military branch of the government at many military bases to expose and show how the men could be fleeced. He later lectured on the subject as "Rackets Are My Racket".

In 1950, Walsh helped start the IBM Ring 113 in Paterson. New Jersey. He contributed items to many magazines including Jinx and Phoenix. [1] [2] [3]
