Biography details

William P. Campbell , circus director in United States

Born ? in United States .

William P. Campbell and Fred B. Hutchinson (his mother was a sister of Mrs. James A. Bailey, wife of the famous showman) organized and framed a new 10 car, flat car type, circus during the winter of 1919-20 at Okeene, Okla. and had it ready to take to the road in the spring of 1920.

1920: Fred B. Hutchinson has just completed arrangements with W. P. Campbell, whereby a new circus will enter the field next season. It will be a one-train outfit, and will bear the title of Campbell-Bailey-Hutchinson Combined Circus and Wild West. It will be organized and assembled at Okeene, Ok., and will take the road in the spring. Both Mr. Hutchinson and Mr. Campbell are experienced showmen, the former as a circus manager and the latter as an owner and manager. For a number of years Mr. Hutchinson handled the managerial duties of the Sells-Floto Circus, leaving the Denver Aggregation a few years ago. He is at present in Parkersburg, W. Va., but will probably go to Okeene within the next week or two.
