I am looking for a woman lion tamer in the circus community sometime between 1905 and 1915. Her name was Rose Flanders Bascom. She may not have used that name. It is told she was clawed by an animal and died from an infection. She was from NH and left her family to join a circus. I can find no record of her or her death. I have photo of her with lions and tigers in a cage. I have no circus name. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you, Joanne Savitkas

Hello Joanne,

 

Here is a photo of a traveling wild animal show in 1905 with a lion trainer named Rose.  The entire name is not included in the photo (it disappears in the left margin), but the timing and the first name Rose indicates that it might be a match for your relative.

Best wishes,

Don Covington
