Harlan Tarbell, who is pictured at left in one of character roles, was also a performer of note.

In addition to the Tarbell course, Harlan Tarbell authored some fascinating books, representative of popular novel 'diversions' of the time. These books inlcuded "Crazy Stunts for Comedy Occasions", and "How to Talk Chalk" [lower left]. A skilled illustrator, Tarbell also illustrated numerous books by others, including "The High School Stunt Show and Carnival" [also shown lower left].

The definitive study of Tarbell is the relatively scarce limited edition written by Eugene Gloye, shown below in pristine condition.
