Samri Frikell (1893 - 1952), born Charles Fulton Oursler, was an American journalist, writer, amateur magician and psychic investigator.
His childhood passions were reading and stage magic. He reported for the Baltimore American before an editing job allowed him to move to New York City.
Oursler had many friends among magicians and would attended S. A. M. Parent Assembly shows and functions of the Magician's Guild. He was especially close with Ching Ling Foo, Long Tack Sam, Carl Rosini, Houdini, Hardeen, Nate Leipzig and Thurston.
With Thurston he ghosted two souvenir books and worked on a movie project, but nothing came of it.
Oursler died while halfway through writing his autobiography.
