On All Hallows Eve in 1899, Seay Administration Building mysteriously burned to the ground. Architect Oscar Scutte Teale, was hired to redesign the building on top of charred ruins. Teal was no ordinary architect, he was the fourth President of the Society of American Magicians and the personal secretary and ghost writer for Harry Houdini. Teal has claimed to write Houdini’s book A Magician Among the Spirits in which Houdini sets out to debunk spiritualism. Houdini attended over 200 seances, planning secret codes with friends prior to their passing that they would reveal if spirit was truly present. They never appeared.
