Frank Reno, real name Frank Renard, made the wonderful effort to write this amazing letter to Mark and the Allakazam Team. There's so much content,stories of his life, and praise for the Magic Land of Allakazam, that this letter in particular, needs to be transcribed. It's sad if Frank's writing is completely lost. Time has already taken it's toll on the quality of the paper, ageing it with the yellow brown tone from being folded and stored next to the newspaper clippings.
I scanned the full articles he sent, but they were larger than would fit on one scan. Hope you can read through the overlap of the images. The ink in the letter also bled thru, making it difficult to read. Hopefully someone out there, in our bevy of Allaka-Fans, will take the care to transcribe this historic information for generations to come.
Who knows about Frank? That collection of Houdini Memorabilia is amazing. Does anyone know if it became the Lund collection? Is it at Copperfield's museum now? I'd really like to know more, as I bet many Allaka-Fans would also apprecaite. This is all part of the historic preservation work that the Allakazam Archives is all about!Also, please do not republish, link to, or share this particular content outside of our Allakazam Archive community and site. Let's respect the authors and their families in the same way we would appreciate being respected ourselves. And in light of that, we will remove your own personal letter if you so request. These postings and comments are monitored and we will do our best to maintain a fun, family friendly site for all to enjoy!
Best Allaka-Magical Wishes,
