Duke Montague (1907-1967) was a professional magician who had traveled widely throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico.


He spent thirty years as a full time pro, entertaining in schools, and often volunteered to perform free for rest homes, orphanages and other institutions.[1]

With his wife, Myrnella, as his assistant they were booked as "Duke Montague -- the Wizard of AHS and Myrnella -- the Memory Lady."

He was an inspiration to many magicians including Mike Rogers, who saw one of Montague's peformances at an early age.

Montague never belonged to a magic club, but the Intermountain Magician's Society of Salt Lake City, Utah, was named the Duke Montague SAM Assembly in his honor.[2]
