Description
Photograph article dated February 24, 1961 partially reads, "A long career that began with an injured ankle was honored Thursday night with an ancient clock that always obeys the command of its master. Burbank's Ray Muse, magician, entertainer, vaudeville veteran, columnist, was honored by the Society of American Magicians for his 'continuous and generous contributions over a long period of time to the advancement of organized magic.'... On hand to present Muse with the ancient clock, once owned by Harry Keller, a world-famous magician who died in 1922, was the vice president of the Society of American Magicians, Dr. Neil Doren, 3450 W. 43rd St., Los Angeles, physician and surgeon." Photograph caption reads, "Doren, left, presents Muse clock that mystifies - Comediene [sic] Nancy Stephens, 557 E. Cypress Ave., Burbank, looks on."
