Overview

Sponsored by The Scientific American Magazine and judged by some of the top scientists in the United States and Harry Houdini himself, The Jazz Age Psychic Contest of 1923-25 offered more money than the Noble Prize. This international search for a genuine psychic attracted one charlatan after another – until a young and beautiful Boston psychic entered at Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s urging. The competition between the medium Margery and Houdini began one of the Jazz era’s most famous rivalries.
