Dr. Tim Moore talks about one of the more well-known magic collectors, Ken Klosterman, the preservation of the Thurston mausoleum in Columbus, his involvement with keeping the MagiFest going during the "hand-off" from the Jep Hostetler days and to it now being handled by Joshua Jay and Andi Gladwin. He also talks about how he got into collecting magic and his specialty including mainly the Hermann family. He then also talks about how he came to own the Karl Germain Lock, advice to people who want to "get into collecting magic" and the disposition of his collection after his passing. We talk briefly about the museum in Blois, France for Jean Eugene Robert-Houdin. You can see and lean more about it by Clicking Here.
