Biography from Ice Capades program 1958

The Mighty Mite!

Short but mighty, small but speedy. This in very few words describes the little man of the big show. Just a little over four feet in height, he is perfectly perportioned and his smooth, solid muscles stamp him as a miniature Hercules. Made a name for himself as the champion of the Silver Skates Derby. He actually jumps one foot higher than he is tall. Born in Cleveland he is now a resident of Long Island, New York. Married, has one daughter. She is as big as Paul -so is his wife.
