Barney (born 1827) and his older brother Hiram were two mentally impaired dwarves who were born and raised on an Ohio farm. Despite their tiny size:said to stand 4o inches and weigh 45 lbs. Farm labor had made them strong, endowing them with the ability to lift heavy weights (up to 300 lbs) They were given the stage names Waino and Plutanor, two gentlemen from the exotic land of Borneo. Years later, they were hired for P.T. Barnum’s travelling shows. Hiram passed way in 1905; Barney in 1912.

Helen Reynolds and her World’s Champions skating team was a fixture at both Ringling Bros circuses and on burlesque and theater circuits throughout the 1930’s
