Bill Tarr (1925-2006) was a sculptor and magician who wrote some books for beginning magicians.
His fascination with magic began at the age of 10. He was the creator of several magic tricks. Some of his magic was featured in Genii 1988 November.
Tarr created the geometric memorial to the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. that resides in New York City and a 5,900-pound bronze casting "Gates of Hell" (also known as the "Gates of the Six Million") which resides at The U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.
Tarr suffered from Parkinson's disease the last years of his life.
