In the December 2012 issue of The Linking Ring, six magicians will be remembered in the Broken Wand. Those are the magicians who we learned had died since the previous month, and for whom we could find enough information for an obituary. Note that not all of them are I.B.M. members. As the primary repository for magician obituaries, The Linking Ring takes pride in honoring all magicians who have died, for their many years of bringing joy and laughter and wonder to other people. Also note that we include the names of charitable institutions to which memorial contributions may be made, for those we found.
