John Robinson Sideshow World
Eckhardt was born on August 27th 1911 at his parents
home in Baltimore, Md. He was one of two twins.
The other brother, Robert, was
born a normal, healthy child.
Johnny, though healthy, was
born with no lower half. His body stopped just
below the ribs.
"Oh my lord, he's a broken doll." cried one of the
midwives as Johnny came out.
However, in his 79 years on this earth Johnny Eck (his
name was shortened by his first manager)
accomplished more than most
people with legs
