My good friend Ormond McGill is approaching his 90th birthday. (June 15th, 2003) Although he’s had some medical challenges in the past two or three years, he is still going strong. He came out, in the company of his friend Lee Grabel to see a show I did with Chuck Mignosa, Loyd Auerbach, and Robert Kane in Concord California on April 12.

Ormond is known as the Dean of American Stage Hypnotists and is the author of “The Encyclopedia of Stage Hypnotism” as well as 32 other books. His autobiography is at the publishers awaiting a release in late 2003. He is truly a living legend and is known worldwide for his writings and his performances featuring Hypnotism, Mentalism and Magic.

Ormond will be performing and lecturing at the Masters Ultimate Stage Hypnosis Seminar coming up in Las Vegas. It will be held at the Boardwalk Hotel and Casino June 19th – 22, 2003. There will be an optional magic course on Monday, June 23rd as well. Other presenters at the Seminar include Jerry Valley, Tommy Vee, Chuck Mignosa, Serena Lumiere, and Christina Kaya.

Should you wish to attend, you may register by calling 800-418-9664. To read more about the seminar, visit Jerry Valley's web site at: http://www.valleyhypnosis.com

Dennis,

I have known Ormond since the Frank Franali (I assume you know him) days and have found him to be the nicest person in magic I ever met. I just saw him and Chuck at a S.A.M. 94 auction in Palo Alto and he seems to be still going strong and still very personable.

I have a couple of his books which he graciously autographed for me as well as a Linking Ring magazine with him on the cover.

Ormond is very knowledgeable about magic and willingly shares that with anyone and if you ever meet him you will agree a great human being. Happy birthday Ormond and hopefully many more.

A message was posted on the Kevin James Chat Board earlier today saying that Ormond had passed away. THIS IS NOT TRUE!

Ormond is alive and well and having a good day at home. Chuck Mignosa spoke with him around 5:30 pm California time.

We don't know how the rumor got started, but don't worry. Ormond is still looking forward to celebrating his 90th birthday and to participating in the upcoming Stage Hypnosis Seminar in Las Vegas.

Such a pity that the great Magicians of the past are completely ignored by the younger generations... Ormond Mc Gill, the great Jimmy Grippo... Think about a Kenton Knepper book without the influence of those two Masters of Suggestion...
