Noble George Washington Winner (along with his wife, Mary) performed with the Ringling Brothers' Circus as "The Greatest Midgets in the World." The Winners were married in a performance-ceremony in 1896. Mary died in 1921, presumably near the couple's permanent home in Monticello, Iowa. Noble is said to have drowned himself in a bathtub in San Francisco in 1926. (350)
