This amazing collection of US President ventriloquism dummies was donated to the museum by retired performer Jim Teter. Jim performed with these figures for decades including on the Tonight Show with Steve Allen. He was on stage warming up the crowd for John Davidson at the infamous Beverly Hills Supper Club on the night of the tragic fire. He is credited with helping to keep the crowd calm during the evacuation. With the addition of these figures the museum’s collection now contains 900 dummies!
