Just kidding! Happy President's Day, everyone! Today I'm sharing Vent Haven's many presidents with you. First, though, here's one among dozens of cartoons in in Vent Haven archives that connect politics to ventriloquism.
Vent Haven has presidential dummies for John Kennedy through George W. Bush. We have two Jimmy Carter dummies and two Ronald Reagans. Thanks to the following people for adopting some of these great dummies!
Lee Orlov adopted one of the Jimmy Carter dummies at the 2017 convention. Tourists always recognize Carter's smile. This dummy was made and used by James Head, who donated it in 1981.
Scott Flom adopted a Ronald Reagan dummy and the Señor Wences dummy made by Leonardo. The Reagan puppet was made by Axtell Expressions. Reagan is made of a latex formula cast in a mold. The cured latex was airbrushed and sealed with clear acrylic. Steve Axtell donated this Reagan in 1987.
