Walter Graham - RIP

Jim Canaday of The Magic Portal writes:

Walter Graham of Omaha passed at the age of 94. If you are not familiar with Walter, he had quite a history. When he was a young man doing magic, he worked with a ventriloquist by the name of Johnny Carson (yep, that one). They remained close right up to the time Johnny died. Walter has a publishing company and wrote a book on magician David Abbott. Teller read the book, redid it and published it as “House of Mystery: The Magic Science of David P. Abbott. On a recent trip to Vegas, Walter contacted Teller and we had superb seats comped to us. Thanks Walter. Teller actually put up a short video to say Hi to Walter.
