Considered the father of modern conjuring, Houdin was a French magician
after whom Harry Houdini named himself. Originally a clock maker, he was
celebrated for his optical illusions and mechanical devices. He was the
first to use electromagnetism for his effects, and attributed his magic to
natural instead of supernatural means. In 1856, he was sent to Algeria by
the French government to counter the influence of the dervishes by outdoing
their feats.
