P.T. Barnum: The Man, the Myth, the Legend
Kathy Maher, Executive Director/ Curator, The Barnum Museum
In this hour, Kathy Maher will explore the many sides of P.T. Barnum. The name alone conjures ideas of imagination and extravagance. Known to most of the world as the 'Great American Showman,’ Barnum did more than create shows of curiosities and oddities. P.T. Barnum embraced the dream of a truly democratic nation, and in doing so, inspired a new American society to reach beyond the limits of ordinary expectations and to see the world as a place of opportunity and wonder.
