The nonprofit Ring of Fame foundation annually recognizes a few circus notables who have made significant contributions to the circus. Since its 1988 founding, 112 individuals and group acts have been inducted. The following acts were inducted Sunday during a ceremony on St. Armands Circle:
PABLO RODRIGUEZ AND FAMILY
Pablo Rodriguez and his family were best known for a five-bar aerial act which was developed in the U.S. and Mexico and introduced to Europeans in 1962 in Sweden's Circus Scott. On returning to the United States, Rodriquez developed a triple-wide flying trapeze act.
TIM HOLST
The late Tim Holst searched for fresh talent around the world as vice president of talent and production for Ringling Bros. Holst was a 37-year Ringling veteran who began his career as a clown.
CHARLES AND MATHIAS CORONAS
Highwire walkers Charles and Mathias Coronas were born in Czechoslovakia, but came to America in 1952. They performed for virtually every major American circus, eventually producing their own circuses and thrill shows. Mathias died in 2006. Charles attended the ceremony Sunday.

  1. Bonjour,

    Je me permets de vous écrire parce que j'ai retrouvé dans les affaires de ma mère 3 cartes datant de 1949 de la troupe Coronas de passage dans le nord de la france. Il y en a une avec la photo de Mathias Coronas, une de son frère Charles et une de la troupe. Si cela vous intérese, contactez moi?
    Cordialement
