When a boy, he served his country as a "drummer" in the army of the Potomac, during the Civil War.
First taught by Oscar S. Teale and became an assistant to society entertainer Harry Sands. His programs as a Lyceum entertainer were novel, with a style of one effect leading up to and merging into the next. A continuous act of magic without interruption for over an hour. His apparatus was largely of work of his own hands, like the bottomless glass he developed in 1878.
He was an active member of the Society of American Magicians, which he was member number 120. He served as their archivist.
He worked for the Western Union Telegraph Co. for over forty years. He passed not too long after being forced to retire in February 1915.
