I am writing from Australia where back in the mid 50s I worked at Wirth’s Circus for a period of 3 years. I was employed as an assistant to Pallenberg’s Bears a bear act from San Antonio,Texas. The Pallenbergs (Emil,Hannah,Billy and Kathy and I toured by train around Australia with Wirth’s for the entire period of their 2 year contract. I did not know May Wirth but knew Doris Wirth who was in charge of the circus and also Phillip Wirth who started a zoo at Townsville in Queensland. Also travelling with the circus was Madeline Wirth a sister of Doris. If I can help you with any further information regarding circuses in Australia please contact me and I will be pleased to assist.

Yours Sincerely Brian Hopgood
