Henry Cameron (November 8, 1881- July 31, 1944) was an Australian born magician who performed as Carmo and The Great Carmo.


He began his career as a strongman before moving to England and establishing his own circus. Organizing a tent show billed as "The Great Carmo Circus Menagerie," he toured the British Isles featuring many animals.

He developed the Carmo Beads routine and a silk production without apparatus.[1][2][3]
