Records about Mama Mary (Mom) from William "Buckles" Woodcocks Blog at http://www.bucklesw.blogspot.com/
"Floto Shows first elephant "Mama Mary" imported from the Hagenbeck Zoo in 1903, for some reason she was always referred to as "Mom". The writer Courtney Riley Cooper made an issue of the fact that she only understood German."
