Jorgen Christensen's mixed act, quite unusual!

Jorgen was a great liberty trainer. Johnnie mentioned how much he helped him to be a polished trainer. My Dad worked for Jorgen in 1927 on fair dates and also helped him on Ringling in 1926 where he presented a 24 horse liberty act.

I remember the story book act on fair dates and Cristiani.

Always appreciate your comments Bob, YOU AND BUCKLES AND BARBARA, among others, SHOULD BE WRITING A BOOK . . . OR AT LEAST SITTING DOWN AND RECOLLECTING FOR LANE TALBERT'S CAMERA.

Jorgen Cristensen was among the few who made close friends with Mabel Stark. During her long days under the Generally Useful clause, he helped her progress in her assignments with horses. When Parley Baer engineered Mabel's episode of THIS IS YOUR LIFE, on NBC Radio, he had Cristensen as one of the mystery guests. A little determined research can find this tape, when you know the air date was April 26, 1950.
