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 #4 1928 RINGLING BROS. CIRCUS

In 1928, quoting the newspaper interview,"by the solicitation of Frank Miller, horse trainer with the Ringling Show, Hazel joined that show for two years"

HAZEL KING ON FRANK MILLER'S EAGLE
Again from the article, "She was assigned to ride a famous horse Ringling had by the name of Eagle. It was a horse that was highly featured by the show and was working on the hippodrome track,entirely alone, having the arena to herself".


FRANK MILLER MENAGE RIDERS
I have a slight problem with this photo, there are 6 riders, & only 5 names. From L to R they are Frank Miller, Bobbie Warriner, Hazel King, Gene Hughs, & Lola Hunt.
