Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

SNAPSHOT: ELEPHANTS #2

Through the years Joanne Wilson worked with several baby African Elephants, including training two of her own. Someone remarked once, "it is all right for her to train these elephants,,,,as long as she didn't consider herself an elephant trainer"!!!!

SNUFFY & JOANNE WILSON
Snuffy later went to George & Lou Ann Jacobs Barreda.



ANNA LOUISE & JOANNE WILSON
Anna louise belonged to Tom Demry, and was trained by Joanne.


SUSY & LITTLE DORY MILLER
Joanne put a nice act together with these two, Dory worked in Trudy's Dalmatian Dog Act until it retired, after that he was worked single on Phillips Bros, by Linda Wilson Herrmann, was with Lee Stevens on Ringling for two years, and Linda's daughter Sabrina Herrman,(now Donaho), worked him, and he was retired here at home six years ago. We lost Dory last Summer at the age of 26.


JOANNE WILSON & SUSY
On Nordmark Circus, in Manchester, NH, about 1989. Susy went on later to star in the Weekly TV show, "Saturday Morning", under the name "JELLY".

Dorey was a pleasure to be a foster parent to... He never missed his marks or cues! We will always be grateful for your trust in us, as well as your friendship.

Anna Louise is still owned by Tom and though i hear she is very well trained, i hear for some reason though, she is the ugliest elephant on the road now. Doesn't look to be in this picture though she must be near 30 now.

Anna Louise is 25 years old and her beauty is in the eye of the beholder
