We know he came to Asbury Park in 1914, but not to perform; in fact, one of the world’s most famous celebrities went completely unnoticed on this occasion. We have documentary evidence that suggests the great escape artist performed at a fundraiser for Monmouth Memorial Hospital at the Ross-Fenton Farm on August 11, 1924, in Wanamassa (Ocean Twp.). But there is much about this document that does not appear to hold water. We want to know if this event ever took place if so, where and when, and was Houdini really ever here?
