Jackson Haines (1840-1879)

Jackson Haines is credited with creating the modern system of figure skating. He was born in Chicago but left home at ten to become a dancer. He arranged many dance steps suitable for the ice rink, like the "Jackson Haines Valse." He was also an expert on roller skates. He gave performances in varied costumes: a Russian, a prince, a lady, or a bear. In this photo he wears one of his famous costumes.
