P. T. Barnum
American P.T. Barnum was an immensely successful promoter who founded the circus he coined "The Greatest Show on Earth" in 1871. In 1842, Barnum met 4-year-old Charles Sherwood Stratton, who stood 25 inches high and weighed 15 pounds. Sensing another potential windfall, Barnum trained the boy to sing and dance and revealed him to the public as "General Tom Thumb." Barnum joined forces with fellow circus managers James Bailey and James Hutchinson in 1881. The following year they introduced "Jumbo," an enormous 11 1/2-foot, 6-1/2 ton elephant from the Royal Zoological Society in London. The Barnum & Bailey show was bought by the rival Ringling brothers in 1907, and in 1919 the two were incorporated into the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Combined Shows, The Greatest Show on Earth.
