Jack Haskin Circus Complex
The JACK HASKIN CIRCUS COMPLEX was founded by Jack Haskin. He founded the unique FSU Flying High Circus in 1947 after Howard Danford, FSU’s first Athletic Director, asked Haskin to help him find a creative way to combine male and female activities at the newly formed coeducational University.
In 1986 the Florida Legislature named the building and grounds as the Jack Haskin Circus Complex to recognize and honor Haskin for his contributions to Florida State University. In 2007 The Florida State University Circus celebrated 60 years on the main campus of The Florida State University. It has been at its present location since 1967.
