Ted Heuber (1894-1976), aka Huber, was a semi-professional children's show magician.


Heuber began in 1929 and was a member of SAM and IBM.[1] He served the IBM as it's Secretary (1933 - 1939) and as their Museum Curator.

He was a circus aerialist and a comedian before he became interested in magic and was known for his "Whistling Sailor" routine at conventions.[2]

Heuber was married to Dolly (Marie?), who's sister was married to Carl Rosini.[3]

In 1951, SAM Assembly 18 in Pittsburgh reported in MUM (January 1952) that Heuber brought and demonstrated the original cabinet from which came a host of walking-through-a-ribbon tricks.
