Member of the Pacific Coast Showmen's Association. This article in the Billboard Magazine, dated 21 July 1945, page 37, mentions Lloyd: Club Activities, Regular Associated Troupers, "Lloyd Lusby, of the Martin Shows, and Ben Beno, who expects to go back to sea again soon, were visitors after a long absence." This may help explain what Lloyd wrote on the back of the photo of him and Beatrice, "this picture was taken last summer after I landed back in this U.S.A."
