John Henricks (fl.1899-1905), known as "The Wizard of the Atlantic" and "Prof. Henricks", was an amateur magician and world class athletic runner.
Henricks lived in Philadelphia when not on his yacht where he trained.
On the cover of Mahatma Vol 3, No 3 (September, 1899), he was reported having great skill with cards, coins and billiard balls. Henricks even issued a $1,000 challenge, which was advertised in Mahatma for years, as the champion billiard-ball manipulator and defied anyone in America or Europe to show otherwise.
In 1905, he became a member of the Adams Spice Co., incorporated in New York, and was reported as still be a bachelor.
