From "The Landmark" (Statesville, NC) January 30, 1930:
Armless Wonder Dies in Salisbury
Salisbury, Jan 27. – Charles B. Tripp, 74 years old, and known around the world as the armless wonder, died at the Salisbury hospital yesterday, death being caused by asthma and complications. His body will be shipped to Olney, Ill, for burial.
Mr. Tripp was born without arms. At 17 he made his first appearance with the P. T. Barnum show at 42nd Street, New York. Since then he has made three tours of the world and been over this country many times. For the past three years, he has been wintering in Salisbury.
Mr. Tripp was able to shave himself and tend to all his personal needs, using feet in place of hands and was a first class cabinet maker, using saw and hammer as aptly as a man with two hands. Surviving is the wife. A brief funeral service will be held here Tuesday morning before the body is shipped.
