Jack K. Greenberg served as international president of the International Brotherhood of Magicians in 2000.
Greenberg received his Mysto Magic Set at the age of 9.
He graduated from Allderdice High School in 1948 then received a bachelor's degree in psychology in 1952 and master's in employee relations in 1955, both from the University of Pittsburgh.
He has worked as a research scientist, human resources consultant and professor of human resources at the University of Pittsburgh.
Greenberg has performed from children's parties to stage shows. His primary type of performance now is a living room show geared toward adults, focusing on sleight-of-hand tricks.
He has a collection of thousands of books on magic and started cataloging them on a computer when few people even knew how to program computers.
At each Halloween, he fascinates the neighborhood children staging a 10-minute magic show in his house.
(On studying magic as a child) "Magic is a deceptive art by its nature, and I got to study that. It's much better than things kids get into today."
