James A. Bailey was the man who got things done, even took The Greatest Show On Earth on a World Tour but did his best to avoid the Lime Light, the exact opposite of Barnum!

Bailey was renowned also for being the best manager of a circus. His business acumen combined with day-by-day and minute-to-minute managerial decisions made him the icon of outdoor showmen getting it up and down and over the road. It was he who composed the slogan "The Greatest Show On Earth". A respectful and enlightening word portrait of Mr. Bailey is found in Fred Bradna's THE BIG TOP.
