|Born||Glen K. Pope|
November 25, 1910
San Antonio, Texas
Pope did the Vanishing Birdcage (as his opener) and the Smoking Clay Pipes. His act was described in Holden's Programmes of Famous Magicians. In the January-February 1935 issue of Le Journal de la Prestidigitation, Dr. Jules Dhotel devoted a leading article to Pope, referring to him in the highest terms.
It was reported in the August 1952 Hugard's Magic Monthly that Pope was talking of returning to Europe because he was unhappy about the state of show business in America.
He spent his final years, which had begun with great success in European theaters and supper clubs, as a lonely, deteriorating man. He died penniless in France, on an unknown date.
