Did you know "the Senator" Clarke Crandall well? Do you have any stories? I met him at the Castle in the late 1960's or early 1970's, I forget which. I saw his X-Rated midnight show in the Parlor of Prestidigitation I believe. I know it was "underground." Anyway when I was there he was by far the kindest magician I met (I think he was in charge at the time), and hippy freak that I was, he nonetheless made me feel welcome.
Also wonder about Francis Carlyle, who forced cards on me for half an hour in the Castle library. I also got to see Goshman's act. Lucky me, huh?
