Floyd Thayer


Floyd G. Thayer was founder of the Thayer Magic Company that made magical apparatus in the 1920's and 1930's. The Thayer slogan was "Quality Magic".

Thayer started his Thayer Magic Co. making wands and advertised first in Mahatma as The Wand of The West. Ellis Stanyon was reported to have been his first customer.

In 1942, the Larsen’s purchased Floyd Thayer’s Magic Company. After his retirement, Thayer and his wife Jennie moved to the Larsen's home in Pasadena where they lived until Jennie's death in 1951. He then moved to Long Beach where he lived with cousin until his death.
