Farewell to Connie Clausen, who began her career riding an elephant for Ringling Brothers, ended it as a literary agent, and in between appeared on Broadway in the 1950s. Clausen, 74 died of a stroke Sept. 7. A publicity agent for MacMillan in the early 1970s, Clausen started her own agency, Connie Clausen and Associates, in 1976. According to the New York Times obituary, she was a pioneer in beauty books and coffee table volumes on art and photography.

She made her Broadway debut (billed as "Constance Clausen") in Ugo Betti's The Gambler, 1952.

Her memoir, I Love You Honey, But The Season's Over, also tells of her early years riding pachyderms for the circus in the 1940s.
