Does anyone know anything about Juggling Joe Taylor, a black juggler who played baseball with the Indianapolis Clowns (Negro Leagues), basketball with the Harlem Black Magicians and the Broadway Clowns (barnstorming teams similar to the Harlem Globetrotters)?

He was from Boston, and was 19 years old when he subscribed to "Juggler's Bulletin" about 1945, so he may still be alive.
