He Played Santa Too

Mr. Jingeling wasn't the first Christmas role that Max Ellis played on local Cleveland television. In 1952, he was hired by WXEL Channel 9--the predecessor of WJW and later Fox Channel 8--to play the top role in the station's Santa Claus show. This photo was taken in that year.
