Help! My grandfather worked as a Ferris wheel operator in a small circus carnival from southern Kansas in the 20’s unfortunately none of these family knows anything about it. Any ideas on what the circus would have been. Trying to find some history.

Your relative probably was associated with a carnival rather than a circus.  Circuses did not carry amusement rides such as Ferris wheels in their inventory.  I would suggest that you contact the International Independent Showmen’s Association Museum in Gibsonton, Florida with your request.  The IISA is a trade organization for the carnival industry and their museum specializes in the history of the American carnival.
