Suzie (Charlotte Vogel) was from Germany, a very sweet disposition, was known as the "Elephant Skin Girl".
Suzie the Elephant Skin Girl


In 1960, Peter Hennen asked my assistance in locating attractions for his show.


When we closed at the Garden in New York, I sent Suzie to him.


She worked for Pete several years.


On one occasion, he had signs advertising her as an "Outer Space Monster". 


She was hurt by this and she protested,


"I am not a monster"!


The signs were removed.


When Pete ended his sideshow, Suzie retired to Germany.
