George Washington Morrison Nutt (1848 – 1881), stage named Commodore Nutt, was an American entertainer. He was a dwarf born in New Hampshire. In 1861, he was touring New England with a circus when P. T. Barnum hired him to appear at the American Museum in New York City. Nutt toured the world between 1869 and 1872 with Minnie Warren. They returned to America rich beyond their dreams after appearing before royalty around the world. Nutt left Barnum's employ after a disagreement with the showman. He toured with a comic opera company, put together a variety show on the United States West Coast, and operated western saloons in Oregon and California. Huldah Pierce Warren (Bump) Newell (June 2, 1849 – July 23, 1878), better known as Minnie Warren, was a proportionate dwarf and an entertainer associated with P. T. Barnum. In fine condition.
