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!

HAZEL KING #2: AL G. BARNES,YANKEE ROBINSON, & CHRISTY BROS.

There is one sentence in the '58 interview, "She decided to leave Hoxie since she could work better alone and handle her own affairs", this was evidently about the same time he went to Hollywood to work in films.(1914) She bought some horses to add to what she already had, worked on several shows, then went back to L.A. to work in pictures for a short time. In the Spring of 1918 she joined Al G. Barnes, where she met & married John Hogan, they left Barnes & went to Yankee Robinson, where she left Hogan & went to the Christy Show for two seasons.

In 1926 she joined Hagenbeck & Wallace, where she met & became friends with Faith Ryan, shown below with the horse Ed Ballard, named after the owner of the show at that time, which is a "whole 'nother story".

Y'all stay with us, we still have a ways to go!
