Rudy Roxo

(Chicago, Illinois: 24th May 1913 - Traverse City, Michigan: 1st June 1974)

Rudy Roxo was the stage name of Clayton Lowell Jacobsen a semi-pro comedy act with small effects and illusions. In 1930, at age 17, he began giving paid magic performances. When he wasn't performing, Jacobsen was employed as a machinist for the Packard and Rolls Royce auto manufacturers. He used his mechanical abilities to build stage props for his use, as well as for other performers. Worked briefly with Thayer's until Jan 1950 when he bought the name and stock of retail supplies from Bill Larsen and moved the business to Traverse City, Michigan, where it almost immediately failed, the final catalog (#10) being printed but unpublished.

Wrote (as "Rudy Roxo") Modern Master Magic (1940, 47pp). Tricks in Genii, The Seven Circles, and The Die Box.
