Duke R. Lee


My grandfather, Duke R. Lee, appeared in many westerns, was in the Tom Mix Circus, worked with director John Ford, was a carny . . . he was married to Louise Gladstone Lee, who was one of the Gladstone Sisters; they performed in Vaudville and later, my grandmother was wardrobe mistress and elephant riding acrobat in the circus. (Louise is the one on the left)

Here's a film bio on Wikipedia, and on Internet Movie Database.
