Thanks to Sheree Brown-Rosner!


Thanks, Sheree, for adopting Willie Talk at last year's convention. This little dummy was made by George and Glenn McElroy of Harrison, Ohio. It has moving eyes and eyebrows, two spitting mechanisms, and a moving upper lip mechanism. Willie Talk was primarily used by Lt. Lee Allen Estes, a Kentucky state trooper who used magic and ventriloquism to educate students about safety. Mr. Berger owned it before Estes and bought it back from Estes' son Ted after Lee Allen died. Willie Talk is one of ten McElroy dummies here at Vent Haven.
