Lost Houdini Spiritualism scrapbook discovered in California

Yes, it's almost two years old, but of interest, I'd have thought.
Today I'm thrilled to share news of a truly incredible find. A hitherto unknown Houdini scrapbook -- which has possibly gone unseen for 83 years -- was recently discovered by an antique dealer in Southern California.

Apparently it sold late last year at auction for $36 000. Not sure to whom. Fascinating documentation of his fight against 'mediums' and spiritualism. With the light of James Randi fading, I wonder who might become the standard bearer and leader of the ongoing battle against the nonsense? Let's hope someone will step up to the plate. Amazing really that after all this time we still have to put up with the likes of Sally Morgan et al peddling their wares.
