Tom Crowl's three adoptees...

January 10, 2018

Many thanks to my friend Tom Crowl for generously adopting three great dummies at convention.  Tom adopted Hunter girl, Lillie, and Jerry O'Leary.  Thank you, Tom!

 

Hunter girl arrived at Vent Haven on February 11, 1944.  According to seller Flora Koones, this doll was, "...made and used by a Civil War soldier to entertain his buddies and after the war used by him to give entertainments and help support himself."  The soldier's name was Henry Hunter.  Although Koones said Hunter made the doll, it is more likely that he modified it, as the doll strongly resembles a Greiner doll.
