Thanks to Linda Mason for adopting a dummy at the 2017 convention on behalf of the Cincinnati Puppetry Guild. The dummy she adopted for the Guild was used by famed puppeteer Larry Smith, who recently passed away at the age of 79. Since the dummy was made to look like Larry, it's name is fitting...Larry Smith.
This great character was used on a TV show called The Contemporaries in the mid 1960's. Larry donated it to Vent Haven on June 29, 1974. Larry Smith was a legend in the Cincinnati region and you can read a great tribute to him by clicking here. He will be missed by everyone.
