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!

larry was always under-estimated-- he started as a butcher knowing nothing, on sells and gray in 1963, but with a lot of basic experience and ambition. he married two of the circus world's top stars (carmen del molino and karen cristiani) and learned to be a very valuable person -- announcing, running one of the first taped show systems, working ponies ande horses, riding manege, working elephants, rigging aerial acts, working props and a little bit of everything else. nd he walways a great person and willing to do anything he could for anybody. we lost him way too soon.
