BornErwin Frederick Rogers
circa 1916


Cladini (fl. 1920s) was known as the boy wonder and his father, a showman, helped train him.[1]


He was mentioned in The Billboard's "Magic and Magicians" section in 1926 when he was nine years old living in Marchfield, Wisconsin as appearing at public schools and private performances.

Less then two years later, in the January 1928 issue of Linking Ring there is an ad by Cladini for "My Complete Magic Show and Illusions for Sale".

He was I. B. M. member No. 968 and a picture of the young Rogers can be see on the Conjuring Arts Exhibit "Many Faces of magic"[2]
