I must give a special thanks to Everett Winrow for contributing the following photos.
Everett was one of the original 9 members of The Mecca Magic Society of Magicians in the early 50's.
Everett remembers Ted as, not only a great magician and teacher but also, a generous and very loveable person and he has many fond memories of Mr. Collins and the club.
