Documents from famed circus donated to Illinois State

NORMAL, Ill. (AP) — Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is about to disappear. However, Illinois State University will be able to offer a peek under the big top. The university says the son of a man who once helped lead the “Greatest Show on Earth” donated more than 15 boxes of letters and documents that once belonged to his father. The papers will become part of the school’s collection from circuses.
