Sphinx

The Sphinx started in March 1902 and ended with the March 1953 issue - 52 volumes. It is arguably the most important magic magazine ever published.

William John Hilliar started it but quickly abandoned it leaving it in the hands of Inez Vernelo. In 1904 Albert Wilson takes editor ship and in 1930 John Mulholland takes the helm until its end in 1953.

Chris Wasshuber

The Sphinx Index by Chris WasshuberThe Sphinx Index is a 540 page PDF, indexing all 52 volumes of The Sphinx magazine. Three people worked for hundreds of hours to collect and categorize this information. It has more than 14,000 entries. The index covers all tricks, effects and articles, but does not include assembly reports and other short trip reports or news items. An interesting category is Portraits & Photos where all photos are indexed by the name of the person shown in the photo. This makes it easy to find image information about hundreds of magicians. The other index categories are: Articles - Biographical, Articles - Historical, Articles...

Wilson's granddaughter, Mary Syphus, conducted about Wilson.
