Inscription.  

Though British by birth, he lived the American dream of rising from minor performer to become owner of the circus for which he worked. As owner of the mighty Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros. Circus, few have done more to preserve the traditions of the traveling, 3-ring, tented American circus. His impeccable standards of excellence and knack for knowing what audiences desire have made the trampoline performer into a giant among circus impresarios.
