Many thanks to Barb Phoenix for adopting sweet little "Walter Ego". This adorable dummy was made by Vent Haven advisor Alan Semok around 1974. Walter Ego was used by Charles Ludlam in a play that he wrote entitled, The Ventriloquist's Wife. The dummy was donated to Vent Haven in 1988 by Ludlam's estate. You can see Walter Ego on display in the main building.
