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!

SNAPSHOTS: THE MAN RESPONSIBLE

UNCLE BILLY THERON
Billy trained the Monkeys, and made all of the wardrobe for this act himself.

Seriously, "Uncle" Billy Theron was a great personality, and deserves a lot of credit for the time, and effort, he put into this unusual act,and The Therons were another of the great talented families of our time.

Yes' uncle Billy' was a great person & an artist of many talents, But what I was very touch by, is that after I left the family to start on my own family' he named his new monkey 'Ninette' after me, this was an honor to me, for I knew he loved his monkey so much, then my sister Mireille wrote me about she doesn't miss me because she would hear. "jump Ninette,"jump Ninette" all day long. the one in the wedding dress has my name. isn't she lovely'.

"Uncle Bill" must have been one heck of a guy! I would love to have seen him and the monks in action! I especially love the shoes.. He must have been very patient and very clever....
