The MUSE BROTHERS- Born in the 1890’s the pair were scouted by sideshow agents and kidnapped in 1899 by bounty hunters working in the employ of an unknown sideshow promoter. Black albinos, being extremely rare, would have been an extremely lucrative attraction. George Muse died in 1971, but Willie lived until 2001 and died at the age of 108.
