Dr. Clarence W. Talbot was amateur magician, performing under the names of "Talvada" and "Fox Brothers" specializing in spook stuff and illusions.[1][2]

Talbot was the youngest man ever licensed to practice medicine in Missouri in the 1930s.

He was a founder and president for over 25 years of the Spokane Mystic Club (1915), one of the founders of the Pacific Coast Association of Magicians, and a member of the NCA, IBM and SAM.

The C. W. Talbot Trophy was established in 1957 to be given annually to an outstanding Spokane magician.[3]

His son Clarence "Tiny" H. Talbot produced the movie "The Cardboard Court" about the history of playing cards.
