Vernon E. Lux (1906 - 1962) was an active IBM member, contributor of many magazines and publisher of his own called The Dragon. He worked as a professional magician and a dealer. Lux served as first president and founder of the International Society of Junior Magicians. Some of the young magicians who later became familiar in the magic world were Harry Riser, Jimmy Grippo and Neil Foster.[1]


His column, Dragon Reincarnate, was a feature of Abbott's The New Tops magazine.

He started a mail order magic business called The L & L Magic Company and later renamed it The Lux Magic Studio. It offered several kinds of pocket & parlor effects.

In 1945 he went into the electrical appliance business. He had planned on just doing editorial work on The Dragon and the expense was just too much. The magazine, along with the Club soon came to an end.

The September 1962 issue of The Linking Ring carried his obituary declaring he died following a heart attack at the age of 56.[2]
