The late Joe White was a little person, and, a magician.The last time we met was about 25 years ago, when I lectured for the club in Long Beach, CA. He got started doing magic while working in a side show. The magician was too drunk to work, and, Joe had enough guts to ad lib the magic act with the drunk magician's props.
The late Will Lindhorst, dealer in St.Louis, saw him, and invited him to the shop. Will always gave pro's. a discount, and Joe finished the season. He had to work out ways for his little hands to "handle" a few props.
My old friend, Irwin Royes, is also a little person. He is a full time pro, in New Orleans.
I suspect that "Eldon" was "fabricated".
