Thanks to the Crowes!

June 28, 2018


Today's special thank you goes to Hal & Pihsiou Crowe.  Not only have they adopted two dummies, but they are also donating a very special handmade item to our dealer's table at this year's convention!  How generous and wonderful!!!  What *is* the new item, you ask?  Well, I guess you'll just have to visit the museum's dealer table in just a few short weeks to find out...



Pihsiou adopted one of the sweetest little dummies in the collection: Linda.  Linda was made by Art Sieving and she arrived at Vent Haven on August 6, 1947.  This sweet little dummy is Jay Johnson's favorite figure.  Watch him talk about Linda and Art Sieving here.











Hal chose figure #489, Minton boy. This dummy was owned by ventriloquist Skeets Minton (real name Ralph Minton).  Skeets corresponded frequently with Mr. Berger beginning in 1950.  Minton boy has a winker and moving eyes.  A fun fact about Skeets Minton: he was an accomplished trombone player!
