Lee was from my hometown of Pomeroy , Ohio. Had a great business with production of old and rare magic posters . He also taught English and other courses at Ohio University . He passed away a few years ago. I got a lot of his posters and programs in my collection currently !

Tommy Windsor used to put out collections of promotion material used by various magicians. Although I haven't looked at any of it lately, I seem to recall that a lot of it came from Lee. There was also a lot from Harry Albacker who had an offset press in his basement, and seem to put out something new every other week.

I knew Lee pretty well. He helped Tommy a lot in his later years. He owned all the rights to Tommy's stuff.

Lee was an interesting fellow. His ex-wife, Miriam, was one of the great psychic readers in the business.

And you could always hear him. Lee always talked like he was in a college lecture hall.
