Ron S. adopted Elvira, a dummy used by Bob Ladd. Elvira was made by Joel Leder and was donated by Bob's cousin in 2014 along with Ladd's collection of other dummies and ephemera. Vent Haven had a special exhibit for Bob in 2015. Bob was very well known in the vent community and he published a ventriloquism magazine entitled, "Dialogue" for 18 years. Thanks, Ron, for supporting the museum through your adoption of Elvira.
