DR. CHARLTON CHUTE

     

 President

 1938

 

He caught the magic bug as a youth, and was a popular entertainer in Los Angeles (1922 to 1929) while attending UCLA.  A Doctor of Philosophy, he was appointed by J. Edgar Hoover to help the FBI develop uniform crime reporting systems. During a trip to Africa, Charlton took along his magic props, and the students there were mystified by his egg bag routine and other effects.
