While Kellar, Thurston and Blackstone gained fame as America's greatest magicians, another American, Charles Joseph Carter (1874-1936), chose to win his fame and fortune as a master magician by traveling around the world. Between 1900 and 1936, 'Carter the Great' made eight world tours in addition to appearances in his native country. [He] died of a heart attack on February 13, 1936, in Bombay, India, while on his eighth world tour. (Magi Posters, p. 11).
