Houdini in Wisconsin

On January 27, 1908, magician Harry Houdini debuted his sensational milk can escape. It was a challenge he described as his greatest invention. Writer Dean Robbins fell in love with Houdini as a kid, and today, he shares the story of the man who grew up in Appleton.

 Dean Robbins is the editor of Madison’s alternative weekly, Isthmus.
