Felix Berol (1872-1914), The Great Felix was a student of magic and known as "The Man with 300,000 Facts." [1]


Berol worked briefly with Nate Leipzig (who took the name Nate Berol) when Nate was getting started in New York City.

With his brothers, Max and William, they performed an illusion they called "Askme". It is a large, transparent clock dial, which was taken to any part of the house, and no matter what question is asked it would answer instantaneously anything that could be answered by letters or figures.[2]

Berol died at The Biltmore in New York city and willed his brain to the Philadelphia Medical Association.[3]
