Beatty-Russell Circus in the the fourties


The center ring act was presented by Mac McDonald and Norma Rogers. The five elephants in this act were Elsie, Margaret, Myrtle, Daisy, and Dixie. Mac McDonald was in charge of all the animals during the fourties. His assistant was Frenchie Durant.

The show left Portland after the Sunday date (July 9, 1944) and moved to Vancouver, Washington, for two days. Longview was next and then Chehalis. It was here, after the night show had broken, that Lucy killed Gabe Tucker. Concello immediately called C. R. Montgomery who had a mink farm outside Albany, Oregon, and urged him to shelter the elephant.
