Kukol, Vickery and Collins
Frank Williamson (Franz Kukol) and James Charles Collins assist in
dismembering Harold James Vickery.
Kukol was a renaissance man, Vickery was a master carpenter and
machinist, Collins was a mad genius. All were fine performers.
Telegram from Janice Sauer's collection of memorabilia from the life and
career of Houdini's assistant Harold James (Jim) Vickery, her grandfather.
There have been disagreemants about the time of Houdini's death. This
should settle all arguments.
The three assistants who are upstage of the coffin are Vickery in front, then
Collins and Kukol/Williamson at the back.
