J. B. Bobo
His work entitled Modern Coin Magic (originally published in 1952) is still considered today to be a core reference by most magicians.
He also wrote Watch This One!, a collection of magical effects performable with small objects. He once disappointed a young Marty Loschen due to having a car accident while attempting to drive to a show at Howell Elementary in Springhill, La.
Bobo's great-grandfather was Jean Beaubeaux who, when immigrating to America, was induced[clarification needed] to spell his name 'Bobo', a phonetic transliteration of the French Beaubeaux into English.
