I have acquired a photograph of the Hagenbeck Wallace circus performers. It measures 8″ x 46.” The photographer mark says Photo Craft, Detroit (I think), that part of the photo is faded. I received it from the heirs of Mr. James Dugger who was a contortionist with the circus. I also have sheet of small photos of Mr. Dugger doing various contortionist positions. The date is 1922. I assume the photo was made in Detroit. Mr. Dugger left the circus, after 5 years and married a local girl in 1925. He owned a china shop. He died at age 93 in 1988. I was wondering if anyone was interested in the history of the Hagenbeck Wallace Circus and might be interested in seeing these photos. I will scan the sheet of small photos and send it as an attachment.

Thank you, Wayne Hartman

I would love to see the photo. My grandmother was also a part of the Hagenbeck Wallace Circus (I think about 1928). Thanks so much for the info!

Dear Wayne, If that is the photo I think it is, a group photo with a giant at center, I would LOVE to see it. How can we do this?

Best wishes, Larry

I would be interested in seeing the photo as my husband’s grandmother was part of a circus in Indiana at that time. Her son said she was a bareback rider.

We would be interested in seeing the photos of James Dugger. The Hagenbeck-Wallace winter quarters was here in Peru during the years Ben Wallace and the American Circus Corporation owned it.

I saw your message on the Circus History Board, and I’m interested in the picture! Isn’t it amazing, its always the contortionists who live to be so old, I’ve never been able to figure out why.
