Following Abbott's 75th Get-Together, it would have been a shame not to have driven a few miles north of Colon to visit the American Museum of Magic in Marshall, Michigan. I first visited this museum following my first Get-Together in 1984. I was fortunate to have been given a private tour by owner and curator, Bob Lund. The Museum is now run by a board of directors but the building and it's contents look pretty much unchanged with what appeared to me as the same posters that adorned the wall way back then.
I chatted briefly with Hannah Lewis who is an intern at the museum who gives regular tours and is quite knowledgeable about the building, its contents and its history. She then introduced me to Jeff Taylor who is the Director. He gave me a little more insight and a private tour of the library which is usually only accessible by appointment.
