Bo & Dinah

Many thanks to Bo Hamada for adopting Dinah at the 2017 convention.

After seeing a lengthy article on Vent Haven in a 1953 issue of The Saturday Evening Post, ventriloquist Frank Hauer's widow contacted Mr. Berger to see if he was interested in Hauer's dummies for the collection. Mrs. Hauer sent them to Vent Haven in September of that year.

Frank Hauer performed in medicine shows until his death in 1950 at age 74. Hauer used Dinah for about 45 years, but, according to his widow, he was not the first owner. Dinah was made in the workshop of Theo Mack & Son in Chicago. Tourists can see Dinah on exhibit in the Josephine Berger Memorial Building.
