Comments / pictures

In 1926, Vera was bought by William P Hall from the Overton Park Zoo in Memphis, Tennessee. The year 1930 marked her 50th birthday. She became one of the six on the Robbins Brothers Circus before Hall sold her to Jimmy Hamiter in February 1932. From 1934 to 1936, she would be advertised as Bingo and perform with the Tol Brothers Circus, Orange Brothers Circus, Joe Webb Circus and Harley Seige Circus & Seige of the Alamo. Hammiter retained ownership through her time with the Parker & Watts Circus until he was in the army in 1942 and forced to sell her to the Arthur Brothers. The Arthur Brothers herd in 1945 consisted of India, Bonnie, Shirley Temple, Vera, Wilhelmina and Gentry Babe, overseen by Cheerful Gardner. Vera died three years later in Grand Forks, North Dakota.
