Inscription.  

Tim Holst joined the Greatest Show on Earth in 1972 as a Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College graduate, he eventually became the 21st Ringmaster in Ringling Bros. history and then went on to be performance director for the Red Unit. In 1985, Holst became a talent scout, and searched the globe seeking new and unique artists befitting The Greatest Show On Earth. His instincts and years of experience helped him find extraordinary talent in even the most unlikely and remote places. That commitment to finding the very best circus performers touched the lives of thousands and earned the respect of generations of families. His unwavering pursuits helped shape Ringling Bros. and his spirit lives on the countless circus performers he discovered.
