I was a tiger trainer in the circus and a Circus Historian who collects PEZ and A&W Root Beer.

Background Information

    I am a Circus Historian and a former Circus performer. I raised, trained and performed my own tigers for several years after having the opportunities to work for other owners of animals. I have always loved elephants. My love became an addicition to learn more about them. I started keeping track of the elephants by talking to elephant trainers, reading the entertainment journals, first hand knowledge and lots and lots of research.

   My e-Book, America's Elephants, is all about the elephants that have traversed across this great country of ours for over two hundred years now. I started with an understanding of what an elephant was and the physical make-up of these lumbering giants.

   I built my chapters around the various stories in the lives of these magnificient creatures. Chapters in my book cover the introduction of the elephant to America, what they eat and what they are not supposed to eat but will anyways, White elephants, the Circus, the Zoos, advertising with elephants, the greatest trainers this country has ever know, tragedies, the breeding programs and the future of the elephants in America and several organizations that are dedicated to preserving these animals in our Society.

Birth Place
Sandusky, OH USA

I currently serve as the Secretary of the Circus Historical Society, Inc.

Additional Information

I authored the 26 page article that covered the Campbell Bros. Great Consolidated Shows from 1896 to its demise in 1912. This was published in the Jan/ Feb 2009 issue of Bandwagon, the Circus Historical Society periodical. I authored the history of the Cetlin and Wilson Carnival that travelled America from 1928 to 1968. This was published in the Carnival Midway and was spread out over 8 different issues. I have been researching Wm. P. Hall out of Lancaster, Missouri who was known as the "Horse King of the World" for the last 2 1/2 years. I'll be giving a presentation on his life at the Circus Historical Society national Convention in July in Bloomington, Illinois.
