Inscription.  
Foremost circus manager of all time began his career as a bill poster. He rose rapidly in the circus world and became the leading challenger to the mighty Barnum. In 1880, Bailey joined Barnum to create “The Greatest Show On Earth”. A master of circus logistics, Bailey directed the show’s American and European Tours. He, far more than Barnum, was responsible for the success of the circus bearing their names.
