CLAUDE M. ROODE

THE WORLD'S PREMIER SLACK WIRE PERFORMER

My great grandfather Claude M. Roode (born Rood) was born in Rock Royal, NY.
I’d love to learn more about the area and people that lived there. --Jim 585-784-0843

This is one of his flyers. He was in a number of circuses including Ringling Brothers. There are book references to him walking on the ridge of the big stone creamery barn as a show when it was built, circus flyers, and a story of being on a torpedoed ship, the Arabic, before the start of WWII.
