Carolyn (Reed) Trask (?-1972) wife of Dr. Victor Trask, appeared before many magic audiences, both in the United States and abroad. She was also an entertainer for the public and worked paid shows.
She met Victor at Oregon State College and were married around 1925.
Her single act with a trained Canary, Dante, won her the Chester Morris Trophy at the PCAM convention in 1942.
In the 1960s, she was owner of the C. Trask Realty Company of Pasadena, and her husband worked part time for her as a real-estate salesman.
She had just taken on the post as a member of the I.B.M. International Board at the Convention in Buffalo and getting ready for the P.C.A.M. Convention in Hawaii when she died unexpectedly of a massive stroke. John Booth conducted her Memorial Service. Some thought she was well on her way to becoming the first women president of the IBM.
The Trasks had no children.
