I have just started researching Fred Walters who made a name for himself as The Blue Man in America and the Continent from at least 1891 until his death at Coney Island in 1923. Particualry interested in anthing that might help explore his orgins a bit more. There was an article in The Circus Scrap Book volume 1 1929, but I can’t find a copy of it online. Hoping someone can help.
I would suggest that you contact the International Independent Showmens Association Museum in Gibsonton, Florida. They maintain an extensive library on human oddities and American side shows.
