The Crystal Gazer, the official Magic Periodical of the World Wide Magicians Society, was published by its president James McKnight from New Jersey. It ran from V1 N1 (no date but announced in April 15 issue of the Sphinx as coming out in April 1924) until V1 N7 (Oct. 1925).

Max Holden was the "traveling representative".

In the last issue, it was noted that membership No. 89 had been reached. Upon the demise of this periodical a continuation for the balance of the subscription was relayed to a periodical called Magic published in Hartford, Connecticut.[1]
