Salo Ansbach (1854 - ?), born in Germany and came to the United States in 1871, was a magic teacher who performed as a magician on the Lyceum circuit starting in 1886. He later was founder/manager of the Ansbach Correspondence School of Magic in Hillsdale, New Jersey.
In 1911 he left magic and went into movie industry where he lost his fortune. He went back to magic, where he became successful again.
He lived at least into his eighties as evidence to a mention of him in the September 1933 Linking Ring (page 501) and his sponsorship of magicians into the IBM in the October, 1938 Linking Ring (page 471).
