I'm saddened to learn of Jimmy's passing. He was a friend of long standing as I photographed the CB~CB show back in the late '60's.

Through the early 90's, Jimmy James was a good friend to me and my family. Her personified CIRCUS, in his red ringmaster's suit and with his rich bartitone voice. Clyde Beatty-Cole Brothers suffered after his stepping down. And now, the world has lost an excellent personification of how great the circus world used to be
