Ted Evans

Ted Evans was from Ashford, England. This Kobel photo was taken in 1946 when he was training to be a boxer. Showman Ward Hall has this remembrance of him - "Ted Evans was not only a tall man he was properly proportioned for his height. He arrived in the U.S. during the John Ringling North administration. His last appearance was on the Ringling Show at the Madison Square Garden engagement of 1959.

Evans became sick during the date but believed the show must go on. By the end of the Garden date he was feeling quite ill.

He had a small car which he could barely get into as it was extremely cramped. He drove from New York to Sarasota, Florida to Memorial Hospital there. On arriving at the hospital, Evans was unable to get out of the car. With great effort they pried him out of his vehicle and admitted him where he expired a few days later."
