Happy 60th Anniversary Circus World!
On July 1, 1959, a peek into the Big Top opened to the public. Circus World in Baraboo was originally the winter home of the Ringling Brothers Circus from 1884 through 1918. It’s now the world foremost museum of circus history and memorabilia.
In the July edition of the Wisconsin Alumni Association’s Thank You, 72 podcast and radio series, we’re remembering two University of Wisconsin-Madison graduates who helped make Circus World the success it is today:
Columbia County (Portage): John M. Kelly
Manitowoc County (Manitowoc) William (Bill) Schultz
