ROLLER BROS. CIRCUS (FROM BILL PRICKETT)

I met Jim Roller April 24, 1994, when Great American Circus showed in nearby Pekin, Il, my hometown. My wife and I also took our houseand visited the show again on 5-07-94 in Iowa City, and 5-08-94 in Muscatine, Iowa. (Photos of GA will follow at later date.) In 1995, I visited the Library at Circus World Museum in Baraboo, WI, and obtainted copies of old program, booklet, and posters, shown in black andwhite. The photos in color taken by Bill Prickett, except photo of Hoxie Tucker.
