Magicans reach out to help Calvert family

Category:   Posted by: I.B.M. Website Editor

When magicians think of the famous performer John Calvert, his wife and assistant, Tammy, comes automatically to mind.

The Calverts were inseparable for over 50 years as they traveled the world with the Magicarama illusion show. In recent years they made scores of appearances at magicians’ gatherings, sharing their lifetime of knowledge with others.  Although Calvert continued to perform into his 101st year, his health declined in recent months and expenses mounted. He died September 27, 2013.

For those who wish to send cards and/or financial gifts to Tammy to help with medical and funeral expenses, she is currently staying with John’s nephew, Fred Calvert, at 4399 Irvine Avenue, Studio City, California 91604.

Friends have also set up a PayPal account for her, ready to receive donations. You don’t have to have a PayPal account to send funds to her. Go to Click on “transfer.” Enter your e-mail address and Enter the donation amount and then answer the questions that follow.

We also understand that the following link will make it easy to send a financial gift to her:
