    Harry Houdini

    Houdini was the son of a rabbi who emigrated from Hungary to the United States and settled in Appleton, Wisconsin. He became a trapeze performer in circuses at an early age, and after settling in New York City in 1882, he performed in vaudeville shows there without much success. From about 1900, Houdini began to earn an international reputation for his daring feats of extrication from shackles, ropes and handcuffs, and from various locked containers ranging from milk cans to coffins to prison cells. In a typical act he was shackled with chains and placed in a box that was locked, roped, and weighted.
