1906 Magic Circle membership badge for Martin Mayhew (real name Donald Stevenson)

Many people may know the name Donald Stevenson because he was an engineer who worked with Chung Ling Soo. He is mentioned in Will Dexter’s book The Riddle of Chung Ling Soo. Fewer people realise that Stevenson used the name Martin Mayhew for his magic. I’m grateful to Michael Colley for pointing this out to me, and supplying background infromation on Stevenson, who was also well known in the emerging world of model aeroplanes.
