Grave The Great Reno
Above is a photo of the grave of Reno the Great. I was unaware but there were apparently two RENOs in the magic world, not related. This Reno is Edward Burdick and he was a magician and also part owner in the Reno & Alvord Circus. The photo is courtesy of the grandkids who are keeping his name alive with a website at www.ed-reno-magician.com.
Below is a printing block that I saw in Ken Klosterman’s Musuem that appears to be for a Reno Poster!Edward Burdick (RENO) died in 1949 and is buried in Mound Grove Cemetery in Kankakee Il.
