Robert "Bob" Doidge (1892-1967) was a professional mentalist performing as "Calostro", collector, author and publisher.


Doidge was also a veteran of the U. S. Marine Corps.[1]

He was listed in the first issue of the Linking Ring as one of the original 20 members of the I.B.M. He was still active in magic in 1959.[2] He later became member number 515 of the S.A.M.

At one time, he was suspected as being Oudini, because of the number of books, "The Great Mystery", he had available to sell.
