In Genii November 1989 Vernon Touch column (or the Vernon Touch book) it states that John Calvert received the MASTERS FELLOWSHIP and that:

"I was honored to receive this award the first time it was presented in 1968. Then what a parade of greats. The award was not presented in 1969 because the Award dates were changed. But here is the rest of the list:
  • 1970 - CARDINI
  • 1971 - VIRGIL AND JULIE
  • 1972 - SENOR FRAKSON
  • 1973 - CHARLIE MILLER
  • 1974 - SLYDINI
  • 1975 - DUNNINGER
  • 1976 - ROBERT HARBIN
  • 1977 - LES LEVANTE
  • 1978 - DORNEY DORNFIELD
  • 1979 - WALTER B. GIBSON
  • 1980 - MacDONALD BIRCH FRED KAPS
  • 1981- GENE GORDON
  • 1982-JAY MARSHALL
  • 1983 - JOE BERG
  • 1984 - MAURICE ROOKLYN
  • 1985-ERIC LEWIS
  • 1986-MURRAY
  • 1987 - TIHANY
  • 1988 - MARK WILSON"

Thus the list is year off from what is published in the AMA programs each year.


Also from The Academy of Magical Arts Awards Shows A 20 Year Retrospect by Paul Butler Genii 1988 January:

"YEAR TWO: While the first awards were held in 1968, year two did not happen until early in 1970."
