He was an early member of the I.B.M. holding No. 234 and his [[S.A.M.] number was 846.
Brown performed magic from the age of 16 and worked under the stage name of Mirza, the Modern Mystic. He was a confidant of Harry Blackstone, Sr. and had spent time with such greats as David Abbott, Houdini, Dr. A. M. Wilson, T. Nelson Downs, and Paul Fox.
Brown obtained his BS Engineering degree from Armour Tech in Chicago and performed his magic show for paid dates wherever he could while going to college.
