Duke Montague 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.

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.[1]
