Louis Lam was a Dutch card magician. Born in Amsterdam, Louis cofounded the conjuring magazine Triks with magic dealer Hank Vermeyden. The magic journal began publication in 1941 and ended in 1943, when the Nazis banned all non-party magazines. Lam authored three books for magicians: Would You Believe It? (1935), Watch Me Closely (1937) and Be Deceived (1939). An article in the New Phoenix magazine stated that Louis was arrested by the Gestapo, during WWII, and was executed in 1943.
