Is anyone else a fan of this man's work? I have only two patter pamphlets from 1950 and 54 from Louis Tannen Co in New York. Can anyone recommend any of his other works?

Try googling his name on that auction site (they don't allow us to mention it), also Amazon. I have everything he has written in the hardbound volumes, and I have corresponded with him. One of Tommy Cooper's major resources. Recommended books is the how to write material books. Bought my first one when I wax a kid (1950) Patter for Standard Tricks, still have it.

He is 86 years old and still funny. What does that tell you about humor and health?

I have photos from his first lecture. He was inspired to perform magic and be a speaker by my mentor Jim Swoger.

IIRC he was a regular speech writer for President Gerald Ford. I'd be curious to learn more about that aspect of his career.
