Val Evans (1896-2001) was a magician who created many effects including "An Invitation To Lunch", a version of Rising Cards and the "Stop Trick." Evans was a World War I veteran as well as a sideshow barker in addition to his career as a touring magician. His career was cut short when he developed agorapobia, and refused to leave his home. He was a member of IBM 122 Boston and the last surviving charter member of SAM Assembly 9. He authored two books, "Patter, Gags and Bits of Business for Magicians" (1935) and Stacks and Stacks of Cards (1940). This trunk was one of his personal touring trunks and contains many small magic tricks and displays. Not being magicians, we are not sure if the contents are in working condition or complete, but it sure is an impressive collection. A few of the pieces are shown in the photographs to the left.
