FCM Beginnings

A businessman (Stan Adair), a magic shop owner (Tom Dethlefsen), a Methodist pastor (Rev. James Knorr), and an architect’s wife (Helen Easterly) met in 1953 to discuss forming a group to meet bi-monthly to encourage each other in gospel magic. The first meeting was Nov. 27, 1953 and the FCM was born.

How, When, Why

“I find it interesting how the Adair version, the Knorr version, and the Dethlefsen version all coincide.”

Stan Adair in What a Fellowship, p. 19
