I am looking for pictures and information on my grandparents who were with Black Brothers Circus in 1935 and 1936. They were Ruth Boyte and H.F. (Archie) Boyte. Ruth rode an elephant named Alice. Archie worked a concession stand. This is the only information we have. Any help would be great.

Thanks. Denise Wilson

Alice was a vert popular name for an elephant so much so, that I have found 17 different elephants in the circus named Alice. I have not found one on a Black Bros. Circus. There was one on Barnett Bros. Circus. Barnett and Black are as close as I can come in trying to help with the circus title. While looking in Bob Parkinson’s book “Directory of American Circueses, 1793-2000,” there is a Black’s Circus listed in 1933. There is no other information found about that show. As you can see, we are bouncing around your information but not hitting it exactly. I would suggest that you contact the Circus World’s Robert Parkinson Research Library in Baraboo, WI. to see if they have any notes on Ruth and H. F. Boyte.

Best wishes, Bob Cline
