Profile of Bill Palmer
Something akin to a cult has sprung up around Vernon. This is understandable. He was a charismatic, skilled performer. He also left an impression on lay people. I remember doing strolling gigs in Houston back in the 1970's and 1980's. From time to time, someone would ask me if I had ever met the old fellow they called The Professor at the magic castle. It takes a lot for the lay public to remember one of us, especially if he isn't involved in Broadway or television. This was during the time when people remembered Blackstone, Doug Henning, "Those guys with the tigers in Las Vegas," and David Copperfield.

The Professor taught me a lot.

A similar thing exists in Austria with Hofzinser.
