With Magic Historian Dr. Edwin Dawes at the 44th Annual MCW

Joe with Eddie Dawes 27 May 2017

I’ve learned and continue to learn from Dr. Edwin Dawes. Today in the McCord Museum, he gave an inspiring talk on the three Cs of magic history: Collect, Collate and Communicate. Also, cite and share your source information widely. I was honoured to have my name mentioned among others who have written doctoral dissertations on conjuring: Charles Pecor, Susan McCosker, Sarah Crasson, Michael Claxon, Philip Butterworth and Will Houstoun (to name just a few). The academic recognition of magic history is changing thanks to the hard work and generosity of Dr. Dawes and many other magic historians who are here this weekend. It’s a magical feeling to be in their presence.
