[Juggling] Ader Brothers/Ader Family Juggling Archive. 1907/10. Over 60 pieces, including a quantity of cabinet cards and boudoir cards, professional photographs, snapshots, and family photos (several cabinet photos show the young Aders, mere boys, with Indian clubs in hand), as well as David Ader’s Union Dues book for 1908 and the Ader family route book, the latter filled with names, placed, addresses, hotels and locations performed. The grouping also includes letterheads and original artwork for the various juggling routines performed by the family. Neatly organized, condition varies from fair to very good. The Ader family found novel ways to vary the standard club, ball, and ring juggling so popular in the vaudeville era. One large format photo in the archive shows the brothers juggling banjos, while letterhead advertises “throwing them to each other while playing a distinct tune simultaneously.” Other acts include juggling on roller skates, juggling while performing acrobatic maneuvers, and juggling trumpets (while playing them simultaneously).
