Inscription.  

A highly respected showman, circus owner and animal trainer. He took over a struggling Garden Bros. Circus following his father’s death and built it into an entertainment giant and Canada’s foremost major circus that rivaled Ringling Bros. in some respects. Since retiring, he has turned his efforts to the training of circus animals and is considered the top trainer of such hooved animals as horses, camels and zebras.
