Demons Club of Baltimore, Maryland was inaugurated on December 7, 1911 at the home of Arthur D. Gans, after the Society of Baltimore Magicians had disintegrated. They moved into their own clubhouse on September 17, 1917.[1]

Their reports started appearing in the in June, 1912 issue of Sphinx and the Demons' Club elected Howard Thurston their honorary president in 1912. For many years the club gave Thurston, his wife and daughter an annual banquet.

In 1934, the club became part of the local SAM Assembly and was renamed the "Demons Club, Inc. — Kellar-Thurston Assembly No. 6." [2]
