This is a digital collection of materials dealing with the circus and its influence on popular culture. This will bring together a heretofore scattered collection of visual and textual materials into a cohesive unit which will aid a future researcher through the increased accessibility. The focus of the collection is France in the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century, although there are many exceptions to this. The bulk of the material was provided by Jennifer Forrest, a professor French literature at Texas State University. The digitization of these images as well as the increased ease of access will aid her in her research efforts.
