The event was attended by 4,000 people in the Scottish Rite Cathedral and raised money for Freemasons in need.”

His funeral on December 20, 1896, held at the Masonic Hall on 23rd Street in New York City was so crowded it blocked the streets. Reportedly thousands of people attended in hopes of being the one to close his coffin.
Called the “dean of magic” and “the most beloved magician in history,” he was the most popular magician from 1896 until 1908. Kellar rented a Masonic temple in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he gave 264 performances, closing the show on June 24, 1885.
Received the mantle of “Greatest American Magician” from Bro. Harry Keller and passed it to his Masonic Bro. Dante (Harry Jansen, 1883-1955).
