The Flying Melzoras Collection

  This collection gives viewers insight to the world of a Saginaw based circus performing family. The Thomas family (Melzer, Buster, Jane, Raymond, Bill, Ann) performed as the "The Flying Thomases" and "The Flying Melzoras" from the 1920's to the 1960's. This online exhibit (nearly 200 photos & images) represents a small portion of the collection but depicts many aspects of their life. A life devoted to the entertainment of others as circus performers.
