Copperfield was born David Seth Kotkin before adopting his stage name at age 18 for a theater show. The American magician is known world-wide for his spectacular illusions, TV shows and magic shows in Las Vegas, Nevada, where his current show headlines the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino. According to WAMF board member Juliana Halvorson, Copperfield visited the Walker Aviation Museum to learn more about his father, Cpl. Hyman Kotkin, who had been stationed at Roswell Army Air Field in 1945. (Juliana Halvorson Photo)
