D’Jelmako le Blondin

D’Jelmako le Blondin (Etienne Blanc 1857 – 1933), was a French Canadian Indian who toured France as a circus performer. He specialized in the high wire. A daring tight rope walker, he died while performing and is buried in the Saint Lazare cemetery, Montpellier, France.

He was also the inverter of the flying torpedo!
