This is sort of a change of subject. Maybe Chris Berry will know what paper was used by the 1937 edition of Hagenbeck-Wallace to advertise Terrell Jacobs? I do not recall ever seeing any HW poster of TMJ.
We've well remembered this man here before. Cardbert Nelson Snyder had a brilliant career, which included taking over Clyde Beatty's big mixed lion-and-tiger act for the '35 Hagenbeck-Wallace season, having great cat acts on Al. G. Barnes, working his cats in films, and taking single-lion acts on lucraive vaudeville tours. Mabel Stark introduced me to Bert Nelson when he visited her in Jungleland, in 1966. I greatly enjoyed listening to his pointers after I worked my acts. We corresponded until his sudden death of a heart attack, in Ventura, in 1975. He was a credit to his profession as an exemplary gentleman.
Bert Nelson is one I truly regret never having the opportunity to shake his hand and chat with him for a while. You were lucky, Roger.Wade Burck
In 1972 when we were in California with Miller-Johnson Mr. Nelson came on the lot and introduced himself. We spent an hour or so visiting and Ican honestly say he was one of the nicest people I ever met.
