I work with Carter. His group used to call him OGO (Oh, Great One!). But now we are calling him Carter, the Great!
Carter googled this character and evidently there was a REAL Carter the Great who lived during the years of 1974 - 1936. Charles Joseph Carter got his start as a journalist and lawyer, then turned to magic. He started in San Francisco but was better known abroad and was famous for the classic "sawing a women in half." There is actually quite a bit of history regarding his home in San Francisco and it is very interesting.
Our Carter has decided to hang this plaque in his office - just so we don't forget who he is.
