He died on Halloween, but wasn’t a believer in the supernatural. And yet he himself seemed supernatural. Hmm…. Learn about the life of one of the most interesting figures of the 20th century, and tell us who you would like to learn about next on Facebook, on Twitter  @HalloweenHaunt, or  HalloweenHaunt.wordpress.com.

Learn all about Mr. Houdini at the website of the PBS program “American Experience,” and read more on Wikipedia.
