Irwin, Bill, 1950-....Alternative names
George Washington Lafayette Fox (1825-1877) was a stage clown who became famous in the role of Humpty Dumpty, a role he played over 1,000 times. In later years he was afflicted with dementia, possibly a result of the lead-based clown white makeup he wore onstage.
