Buster Keaton

Buster Keaton was almost literally “born in a trunk.” His parents had stopped in Piqua, Kansas in early October, 1895 while performing with a traveling medicine show. Myra Keaton missed playing the saxophone at the October 4th performance when Buster arrived, delivered in a boarding house just across the street from the site of the evening performance.

He died in California in 1966.
