[Houdini, Harry (Ehrich Weisz)] Harry Houdini vs. The Great Blackstone. File of Documents Pertaining to a Disputed Exposé. New York, 1922—23. Five pages total, sent to Blackstone by Pat Casey of the Vaudeville Managers Protective Association, containing copies of documents pertaining to the publication and “exposure”, in the footnote to an article by Houdini in Popular Radio, of a secret of David P. Abbott’s “talking tea kettle”, a divulgence for which Houdini had been blamed, and including: a summary of a telephone conversation between Houdini and Kendall Banning, editor of Popular Radio, witnessed by Oscar Teale; two letters to Houdini from Banning explaining the editorial decision to include the footnote; and a letter from Banning to A.M. Wilson of The Sphinx in which Banning writes that he assumed “responsibility for all the illustrations and footnote… which have apparently caused so much misunderstanding.” For Houdini’s account of the episode, see M.U.M. Vol. 3 No. 3/4 (Sept./Oct., 1922) p. 125.
