The New Houdini Chronology documents every week of Houdini's life with known performances and notable events. On this page you can view a rotation of 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 reseach tool and enjoy the previews!

The New Houdini Chronology year end update


As we near the end of the year it may appear I've abandon this page and the chronology. But nothing could be further from the truth! I've been working on the chronology almost daily and it's growing into something truly spectacular. My plan remains to eventually publish it in a book, the exact form of which I've not yet entirely figured out. But it will be the Houdini book of my dreams.

However, to make this chronology as complete as possible, there's still work to be done. I hoping to mine some key archives and collections in the course of the new year. I really believe I'm building a monumental resource for historians, collectors, libraries, museums, and more. So rest assured, The New Houdini Chronology continues to grow and one day it will be in everyone's hands.

And in the meantime, I'm always happy to provide an assist to serious researchers who are looking to locate Houdini in a specific time and place. Chances are I have what you need. Contact me.

    1. Thanks Professor! All there is to "look over" at the moment are my sample pages at the top, but that will give you a good idea of what this will be.

  2. I suppose it was destiny that you would be the one to carry the torch from Koval and complete the chronology of HH' s life as much as possible. I'd love to see it in a nice book filled with unpublished photos.
