Thurston, Kellar's Successor -- January 4, 2013

Magician Howard Thurston established himself as a successful vaudeville performer, then joined with Harry Kellar on his farewell tour.  When Kellar retired in 1908, Thurston carried on as his successor.  Thurston carried on performing until he suffered a stroke in 1935.
