FROM


THE EDGE OF THE UNKNOWN

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
1930

Who was the greatest medium-baiter of modern times?  Undoubtedly Houdini.
Who was the greatest physical medium of modern times?

There are some who would be inclined to give the same answer.  I do not see
how it can ever now be finally and definitely proved, but circumstantial eviden-
ce may be very strong, as Thoreau said when he found a trout in the milk jug.

I foresee the subject will be debated for many years to come, so perhaps my
opinion, since I knew him well, and always entertained this possibility in my mind,
may be of interest.

If others add their experience in order to support or disprove my own surmises,
then some result may eventually be obtained.

I will first give some of my own personal impressions of Houdini.  I will then dwell
on some phases of his career which show his singular character, and I will then
endeavour to give the argument as to the source of his unique powers.
