History

As early as 1862 P.T. Barnum and J.A. Bailey founded the company with the slogan "Greatest Show on Earth". In 1923 a partnership was entered with Ringling Brothers. Starting in 1929, John Ringling purchased several smaller businesses with a credit loan of over a million dollars. Three years later he founded the above-named company.
