Happy Birthday Houdini

Today, (March 24) is Harry Houdini’s birthday. Houdini was a renowned magician and an escape artist, who astonished audiences by escaping from handcuffs, straitjackets, and prison cells.

However, did you know that Harry Houdini was also an inventor? That’s right. Houdini’s invention for a “diver’s suit” permitted divers, in case of danger, to quickly divest themselves of the suit while submerged and to safely escape and reach the surface of the water. And he was awarded a patent. Photo LOC
