Milton Kort Lecture Notes
AuthorMilton Kort
EditorRon Bauer
Publication Date1963

Milton Kort Lecture Notes is a set of notes for Milton Kort's lecture tour in 1963. They were edited by his longtime friend, Ron Bauer.


When released, the notes were briefly mentioned in Hugard's Magic Monthly as "an impressive 14 pp brochure--far more than you usually get with a lecture."[1]

John E. Dawiek, secretary of the Society of American Magicians Assembly No. 3, had great things to say after Kort visited their club in Chicago:

Milton Kort whose reputation as one of the outstanding personalities in magic today proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he is worthy of all the praise. The lecture basically consisted of close-up magic, which was on ropes, coins and cards. Each shown in his own unique style. The tricks were all of a simple nature, but left you with astonishment with its big effect. It was obvious to all he completely captured the audience by the great applause and attentiveness of them. Being a great artist as he is, the members were reluctant to see it end, as must all good things. It is quite evident why Milton Kort's drug store in Detroit is such a popular place for visiting magicians and friends of magic.[2]
