IBM Ring 1 is the St. Louis Missouri chapter of the International Brotherhood of Magicians.

Originally began as the "St. Louis Magic Club" with Andrew Buel as one of the founding members. It later formed into an Society of American Magicians Assembly. When this Assembly was disbanded he formed the "St. Louis Society of Magicians".

In 1927, Buel created the idea of rings and wrote President W.W. Durbin for permission to form Ring One.
