Clinton Burgess (August 3, 1880 - November 2, 1932) was a professional conjurer for thirty years, operating his own entertainment bureau. He was co-owner of Metropolitan Bureau of Magic with Robert H. Elroy.
Born in Philadelphia, he was a descendant of a New York Governor, Dewitt Clinton.
His first stage appearance was at the Majestic Hall, New York City in 1898 and he made his professional debut at Pastor's Theatre, New York City in 1902.
In his column in Mahatma, he roasted the various exposes of those days and carried on a forceful campaign against all forms of magical exposure.
