Happy Birthday!

Clothing popularizer, & First flier

Jules Léotard

born in Paris on

8/1/1830 {and 1838} {and 1839}
(d1870) {at age 28} {at age 32}
{of an undiagnosed infectious disease} {of smallpox}

Léotard performed the first flying trapeze act at the
Cirque Napoleon in Paris, France, November 12, 1859.

        He'd fly through the air with the greatest of ease,
        That daring young man on the flying trapeze.
        His movements were graceful, all girls he could please
        And my love he purloined away.

                -was actually written about him. Tune: anon; Text: George Leybourne (1842-1884)
