Frank Shank (fl. 1950s-1970s), at one time a resident magician at Dix & Norb's Magic Inn in Chicago, adopted the stage name of Frank Derrick. He also performed fire eating.
It was reported in Frances Ireland's column in the Linking Ring (Feb 1956) that Derrick had moved back to Chicago for business reasons, after a stay in Rochester, New York.
