Information is scarce about Alice Bounder (also Bound or Bounds), the Bear Woman. Her mother, with whom she is shown, was born in Calcutta, India, and the two women were exhibited together as Mama Bear and the Bear Cub. Alice began her sideshow career at Dreamland in 1880. Souvenir cards indicate that she later toured Europe. She married in 1896 and bore a normal son. I've also seen photos of Alice identified as Mrs. Banks, Mrs. Mills, She-Bear, and Ursa, the Bear Woman.
