Houdini & Doyle

Houdini and the famous author of Sherlock Holmes were great friends. They both attended many seances and shared an interest in spiritualism. Doyle and his wife even went so far as to hold a seance for Houdini and his wife Bess. The purpose of the seance was to contact Houdini's dead mother. Doyle's wife claimed to have made contact, but Houdini remained skeptical. The incident put a strain on their friendship.
They were to battle again over the Margery case. Sir Doyle was absolutely convinced that the medium from Boston was genuine. Houdini was called in to investigate the Margery case and soon Doyle and Houdini were exchanging angry words in the press.
