Obert Miller began training ponies and dogs for the circus, family pets, way back in the 1920's. In 1937 he and his sons Kelly and D.R.. founded the Al G Kelly & Miller Bros Circus. The wonderful pictures from the Buckles Woodcock Collection document many of the early years. In the 1960's that show was merged with the original Carson circus to become today's Carson & Barnes. Barbara Miller Byrd, D.R. Miller's daughter was born into the circus world. Her own daughters, and now her grandchildren are on the show.
