Here's a hint. He was cremated. What happened to the ashes?

Yes, for many years. He's still there, overlooking the entrance to one of the showrooms.

I am not a magician but I was doing some research about my grandfather and I found this website very helpful.

Dai is my grandfather and I guess I didn't realize how famous he actually was, I didn't really get to know him when I was growing up. It makes me feel good that he still has a fan base.

I'm also guessing that Houdini wasn't exactly keen on the illusion of depth/tilt subtlty.
I actually have an impromtu way to get out of that with a reversed card that's pretty handy for a phase in an ambitious card routine.
Kind of a modified second deal/KM move thing.

Ughhh. So many unfounded claims, so little actual knowledge regarding any history, ughhh.

Why can't people just learn about magic history? There were fugues before Bach and there was card magic before Dai Vernon.

"There is a book called "The Magician and the Cardsharp: The Search for America's Greatest Sleight-of-Hand Artist" by Karl Johnson. It tells Dai Vernon's story with a focus on his search for the greatest chard cheat; someone reputed to have the ability to deal from the center of the deck."

FUNNY quote when you consider that Vernon was a Canadian. Kind of like many Americans assuming the Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone in the US.

First of all, Canada is part of America. North America if you want to be more specific. Second of all, the "greatest sleight-of-hand-artist" the title reffers to is not Dai Vernon, it is Allen Kennedy who is from the US.
