circa 1868
Savannah, Georgia

Frederick Barrington (1868-?) was the stage name of professional magician, collector, dealer, author, and early S.A.M. official, C. C. LeBey.


Issues of Mahatma as early as 1895 reported LeBey doing shows in the Savannah area as "Prof. LeBey".

In October 1902 he was touring southern Florida with a full evening show.[1]

At the age of 70, Barrington and others from Florida placed an ad in the Linking Ring for December 1938 wishing everyone "Christmas Greetings".

LeBey’s torn corner card trick appeared in The Art of Magic by T. Nelson Downs in 1909 and again in The Magic Art by Donald Holmes (1920).
