The New Houdini Chronology documents every week of Houdini's life with known performances and notable events. On this page you can view some sample years as I continue to build on it. My plan is to eventually offer the complete chronology as a book. I hope you'll find this a useful research tool and enjoy the previews!

Europe's Eclipsing Sensation: 1900-1905

Today I'm sharing a new block of preview years from The New Houdini Chronology: 1900 to 1905. These are the years that saw Houdini's breakout fame as the "King of Handcuffs and World Champion Jail Breaker" across England, Germany, France, Holland, and Russia.

As a bonus, I've also included the massive "A.D." page that tracks the amazing afterlife of Houdini from 1927 to the present. As always, your comments and contributions are welcome.

As you can see, I'm no longer offering the entire chronology online. This is because I'm working toward publishing it as a book. But if you ever need any specific information related to a date not currently previewed, feel free to get in touch.

I hope you enjoy this latest peek inside The New Houdini Chronology.

    1. Thanks Rebecca. Book and pre-order is still a ways off. But I appreciate the support. :)
