April 28: Happy Birthday, Joseph Dunninger!
Let's also note that Joseph Dunninger appeared on a show called The Ghost Hours in 1929, de-bunking rival mentalists. He was a confrontational fellow, challenging any mentalist to do through supernatural means what he, Dunninger did through natural means. He also had a standing, hefty cash reward for anyone who could prove he used shills or conspirators in his acts.
Dunninger also contributed the influential book The Encyclopedia of Magic. If he were alive today, you could think a happy birthday wish and he'd get it.
