Inscription.  

Patriarch of the versatile family that has trained and performed with a wide variety of animals, Derrick Rosaire has endeared himself to three generations of American audiences with his classic presentation of “Tony The Wonder Horse,” a remarkable demonstration of the harmony that can exist between man and animal. Daughters Kay, Pam, Linda and Ellian and son Derrick, Jr., carry on this tradition, each having attained stardom in a different field of animal training and each having contributed to the perpetuation of the Rosaire name as one of the foremost families in training and presentation of circus animals.
