Delmas W. Jenkins (1907-1985) performed on a semi-professional around Nashville Tennessee from 1925 until the mid-forties and then became a collector.


Jenkins held I.B.M. No. 1543, which he originally joined in 1927 and was a member of the Order of Merlin.[1]

He was a close friend to David Price and when Jenkins passed away, he left his considerable collection of magical correspondence to David Price's Egyptian Hall Museum.[2]

In the early 1940s, he was charter member #8 of the Magicians Club of Nashville, which in 1951 became the A E Harrison Assembly No. 50 of the SAM.[3]
