Biography

He helped start Norfolk's first organized magical fraternity the "Blackstone Ring 1" in 1943.[2]

Just a few days before his death he was voted an honorary lifetime member of Ring 103.[3][4]

I.B.M. Ring 103 in Norfolk was named in honor in 1954 (then renamed the "Earl Edwards Ring in 1972.)[5]

The Ring's newsletter Fresh Korn From Frischkorn ran for four issues in 1960 until editor George Lyon moved from this area.[6]
