Inscription.  
No animal trainer has created the same element of suspense as Mabel Stark did when she entered the steel arena, carrying only a small buggy whip and a short stick. The authority of her voice and force of her personality controlled 21 tigers and lions.

Billed as the “Tiger Queen,” she was the first woman to ever train tigers. Her most famous feat involved a routine in which she wrestled a full-grown tiger. This was her trademark throughout her 51-year career.
 
Erected by Ernestine and Parley Baer and the Circus Ring of Fame Foundation.
