Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Harry Morphet (1851? - 1929) was a magician and musician that worked the Lyceum circuit.[1]


Together with his brother, Fred Morphet, he formed a partnership in 1880 known as the Morphet Brothers, presenting mysteries before local societies in Philadelphia.

From Bucks County Gazette of February 1908:

A little break occurs tomorrow evening in the lecture course. It will be an entertainment of other than the literary and historic sort, but no less acceptable, we believe, to those who attend. “An evening with the Magicians and Vocalists” the tickets call it. We subjoin the programme: Piano solo, by Florence Wood Mitton; “Banquet of Mysteries,” by Harry Morphet; musical novelties, William H. Stevenson, assisted by Mr. and Mrs. Morphet; selected reading, Florence Wood Mitton; magic and ventriloquism, Harry Morphet.

A mention of his passing was in the July, 1929 issue of the Sphinx.
