The group will be meeting in St. Louis. Melinda, the first female magician to star on the Las Vegas Strip, joins an elite group of honorees, including Harry Blackstone, Doug Henning and David Copperfield. Saxe's success can't be traced to any one illusion or super-trick, but rather it's the result of years of training, first as a dancer in several Las Vegas Hotels, including a stint in the Siegfried and Roy show, another magic-oriented revue. She was 16 when she took up prestidigitation. She has honed her skills to the point that Copperfield recently remarked. "Melinda is definitely the most talented female magician I'have ever seen."
