Circus lore and culture is fascinating. The Harrison Sayre Circus Collection is made up of a vibrant mix of posters and photos documenting the dynamic nature of this blend of showmanship, animal acumen, and acrobatics. These materials were donated to the State University Libraries of Florida by Harrison Sayre, a circus enthusiast. All told, there are over 210 items here culled from Sayre's personal collection. The posters are vibrant and dramatic, and visitors shouldn't miss those for the Big Apple Circus's appearances at Lincoln Center or the rare Polish circus poster by artist Waldemar Swierzy. The photos section contains images of everything from Allen Gold, celebrated lion tamer, to a rather adorable photo of baby elephants lined up before a performance.
