October 2018 Meeting

Thank you, Melissa, for an enjoyable evening.

Melissa Dunlap shared  memorabilia and family history about her great grandfather, Edward Thorn, a Buffalo  N.Y. native.  He performed in the late 19th and early twentieth centuries in many shows including William Cody's famous Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show.  Melissa told fascinating stories of Edward's career as a juggler,  daring wire walker, and presenter of Punch and Judy Shows. Please scroll down to see some  of her collection.
