Ray-Mond (1916-2003), born Raymond Monroe Corbin, began a professional performer as a teenager with Dr. Miles medicine show.

By 18 he was working as a mentalist-mindreader act as "Rajah Ramo". At the age of 22, he was performing stage magic in Vaudeville. He would bill himself as the "Aristocrat of Deception" after seeing a Hellmann's Mayonnaise truck advertising its product as the "Aristocrat of Mayonnaise."

Opened his Ray-Mond's Studio of Magic in Westminster, Maryland in around 1946.

He founded the Ray-Mond Assembly S.A.M. in Westminster, Maryland, was one of the organizing founders of the Society of Young Magicians and served as the National SAM President (1984-85). He was a Silver Star member of the Inner Magic Circle, London, England and a member of the Order of Merlin Excalibur in the International Brotherhood of Magicians.

Ray-Mond was also elected into the Society of American Magicians Hall of Fame in 1990.
