Teral Garrett (1914-1970) was the editor of Psycho-Gizmo (1951-1965), The Cosair and Perpetual Lists.


Became interested in magic at age of twelve and gave first performance in English Class at Albany High School. From 1935 to 1937, he built his own show and played schools, theaters and clubs in southern Kentucky and Tennessee.

At an early age Garrett broke his neck. Later in life was exempted from the armed forces and could not make his livelihood by jobs that required any exertion of great physical energy. For most of his life he was employed as an auto parts man at a local auto parts house in Albany.[1]

He later started dealing in used and rare magic, with his advertisements showing up in magic magazines during the late 1930s.

Before 1940, Teral performed with a variety group called the Rozelle Players. The group consisted of a comedian, a musical group, and "Teral The Mystic."

His contributions can be found in Tops, The Dragon and The Linking Ring.[2]
