Tom Harris (c.1912-1969) teamed with David Rose to perform as "Harris and Rose" while attending Vanderbilt University.


Again with Rose (later a bishop in the Episcopal Church), they conducted a column in 1930 and 1931 in the Linking Ring under the title of "TRIX FOR TRIXSTERS".

Harris received his MA degree from Harvard University and taught there for a number of years before practicing as a consulting psychologist in the Boston Area. He joined the S.A.M. and became a member of the Boston Assembly. He was also a member of the IBM.[1]

In the 1950s, Harris returned to Tennessee and was retained by the Polaroid Corporation and commuted between Nashville and Boston as his services were required. Beginning in January 1959 issue of Genii, he wrote a series of articles under the title of CONJURING FOR THE COGNISCENTI.[2]
