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.
