Ormond McGill, Dean of the National Guild of Hypnotists passed away earlier today. He was 92. Author of the Encyclopedia of Stage Hypnotism and many books on hypnosis and magic, Ormond was well known and well loved by those that knew him. No immediate plans have been announced at this time concerning funeral or memorial services.

With deepest regret at his passing,

Lee Darrow, C.H.

I was saddened to hear the same from an email received a few minutes ago. His books were an inspiration to all interested in hypnosis and psychic magic. I remember getting his books published years ago by Abbott's while in high school. Great stuff in them that inspire magicians today. He will be missed.

Ormond was a dear person that unfortunately I only knew casually.

We had some talks on hypnotism at Collector's many years ago. He had just a gentle touch and manner in working with subjects. Reminded you of an old time minister.

He had me build him a new botania to replace his original Marshall from the 50's. He also gave me a complete script for his Triple Floral Tube presentation which he said I could publish. Maybe someday, it will happen.

Rest in peace dear man.

He was the most impressive magician I 've ever seen.
Psychic Magic was the first magic book(s) I ever bought. The chapter on the presenting the miracle needs to be tatooed on anybody who wants to do mental or bizarre magic.
Less than 2% of reported UFO's turn out to be actual interplanetary vehicles.
