The Ringling Archives have received a grant from the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) to digitize circus route books, dating from 1842-1969. Only 400 circus route books are known to exist. Similar to yearbooks, route books contain information about people, positions, events and the show’s season. After digitization and upload, these route books will become a storehouse of data useful to historians, researchers, writers, teachers and family historians all over the world
