Sarasota in Sarasota County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
D.R. and Isla Miller
Circus Ring of Fame
Their contribution to the preservation of the traditional circus is enormous over six decades. They launched their tented shows to towns and cities throughout the nation, compiling the longest record of continual ownership in the annals of the American circus. Through their efforts, some 50 million people enjoyed live circus and three new generations were introduced to an entertainment form that might otherwise have disappeared.
