Thanks, Gary K.!
Here's my friend and longtime Vent Haven advocate, Gary K., posing with his adopted dummy which belonged to ventriloquist Peter Fauer (1939-1987). The dummy was made by Jack Coats and donated by Fauer's brother in 1987 on behalf of Fauer's children. In an accompanying bio, Fauer's brother wrote, "Pete loved children and would go out of his way to amuse and entertain them. He also loved old cars - Volkswagen Beetles - performing as Snappy the Clown and doing his vent and magic acts."Last year, Vent Haven Museum Advisor Dale Brown selected this great dummy as his favorite figure.
