Charles S. Eby (c.1873-?) was an amateur conjurer and elocutionist in Washington, D. C..
He retired as head of the U. S. Bureau of Mines expense voucher unit in 1944. He was an Government employee for more than 42 years
After receiving his early schooling in Pennsylvania, Eby toured a vaudeville circuit with a magic and marionette act. He gained recognition later in the motion picture projection field when films were still being shown in churches, public halls and auditoriums.
Mr. Eby's grandson, Lieut. John W. Townsend, of the U. S. Army Air Corps, also took up magic.
