Charles W. (Chang) Reynolds (1933-1986) was a teacher in the public schools of Pasadena, California for thirty-four years. During World War II he served four years in the U.S. Navy. A native of Livonia, New York he matriculated successively at the Rochester Institute of Technology, Pasadena Junior College, UCLA, and USC. An active artist all of his life, he specialized in drawing animals. Later, he derived a good income from western and animal scenes that he painted on oils.

Called “Chang” from his college days in Rochester, he signed all his writings in that style. “Chang” was the name of an elephant at the Central Park Zoo that he drew and enthused about to the point that his fellow students gave him that nickname. During his lifetime Reynolds assembled the largest file of elephant biographies in America. In addition, he wrote many articles and one book on circus history.

His collection was donated to the Circus World Museum on 27 December 1991 by Lois J. Reynolds and Terry M. Mead.
