George Morton (-1950) was the stage name of children magician and mentalist, George I. Cohen.


During the 1930s and 40s, he played mostly schools in the Pennsylvanian area, but also appeared at many society affairs as a mentalist.

He had just finished a school show, packed up in a hurry to get to the next show, when he suffered a heart attack and died instantly at the age of 58. He was number 1810 in the S.A.M.[1] and was also a member of the I.B.M.[2]
