Emmett Kelly/ “Weary Willie” Clown

My sister thinks we got this hand puppet at the circus. It was before I was 5. Some people have a fear of clowns(coulrophobia)

There is an Emmett Kelly Museum in Sedan, Kansas -born there in 1898.  You don’t hear the word “hobo” anymore.

Another find while cleaning out.
How do you feel about clowns?

  1. My brother-in-law was a Shriner clown for years. He made a great clown and he loved it. He passed away 2 years ago. Thanks for allowing me to relive some of his memories.

  2. We have a clown in our circus show called “Woeful Willie” He is even sadder than Emmett.
