THE SOCIETY OF CANADIAN MAGICIANS TRIBUTE
TO JOHN GIORDMAINE
September 16th, 1973
It was excellent that the (sadly now defunct) SCM honoured Johnny by way of celebrating his 75th birthday. It was a memorable event, topped off by the presentation of this framed tablet created by Sid Lorraine and Larry Silverman. NEW: Joseph Giordmaine has provided a colour copy of the original tablet which is reproduced below (replacing my original b&w repro from the pages of "The Levitator". Johnny's original written comments remain.)
As a very junior member, I wrote a letter which was published in "The Levitator" at the time which expressed my appreciation to Johnny for sharing his lifetime of experience and magic with all of us (at the celebration and in general). The SCM published it but somehow it is missing from my archives. If any former SCM members have it in an old issue of "The Levitator," I would like to post it on this site. UPDATE: It's now on page 31.
