Circus Performer
    Born in Stolpen, Germany
    Gracie (March 12, 1899-November 8, 1970), birth name was Frieda Schneider
    Harry (April 3, 1902-May 4, 1985), birth name was Kurt Schneider
    Daisy (April 29, 1907-March 15, 1990), birth name was Hilda Schneider
    Tiny (July 23, 1914-September 6, 2004), birth name was Elly Schneider
    Performed with the 101 Ranch Wild West Show and Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus
    All four portrayed Munchkins in 'The Wizard of Oz' (1939)
    Harry, Daisy and Tiny appeared in 'Freaks' (1932)
    Heights: 3'3 (Tiny and Harry), 3'5 (Daisy) and 3'5-1/2 (Gracie)
    They changed their last name from Schneider to Earle after their manager, then after the manager's death changed names again to Doll.
    One confusing result is that in the IMDb, Harry and Daisy are listed under 'Earle,' while Gracie and Tiny are under 'Doll.'
    In 'Freaks,' siblings Harry and Gracie portray an engaged couple.
    They lived together in the same house almost all their adult lives.
    One brief exception came in 1942 when Daisy married Louis Runyan, an average-sized man, but they divorced in less than a year.
    Daisy was known as 'the Midget Mae West.'
    Harry was responsible for bringing the story on which 'Freaks' was based to the attention of director Tod Browning.
    They made a good enough living from the circus to retire to a custom-built house in Sarasota, Florida.
    Their house, with its diminutive furniture, was featured in several magazines.
    Tiny took part in the ceremonies for the 50th anniversary of the 'Wizard of Oz.'
