EARL SHIPLEY: Billboard Article (November 29, 1952)

It seems that 57 years ago, Earl Shipley accurately predicted the coming of "Kuliki Taka".

Hey, Pat,

Some of the text is cut off. Can you point us to the orginal? I have a hard copy of it somewhere, and I recall him listing my great-uncle Hank as among the best of the old timers.

Found it! He's in the paragraph titled Old-Time Stand-Outs. His partners Bobby Clark and Paul McCullough are mentioned along with Buck Baker. Nice to have validation from Earl that he was a good clown.
