She made her solo debut in the center ring of the Ringling show in 1915. ... A charismatic persona combined with a publicized personal life made Lillian Leitzel an American celebrity ... Performing in Copenhagen ... on February 13, 1931 [she] fell more than twenty feet to a concrete floor [and] died two days later” (Strobridge, p. 222). (circus)
