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!

Anacapa – Channel Islands National Park

Anacapa – Channel Islands National Park

The Anacapa project is an update from the original version from several years ago and includes 4 more panorama views that were not previously published. Anacapa Island is a very rugged and desolate place worth a visit. The images are from October when most of the vegetation has died back making it look even more barren. In the spring the island comes alive with the greening of the plants and especially the giant, brilliant yellow coreopsis flowers. Anacapa is part of the larger chain called the Channel Islands and includes Santa Rosa Island, San Miguel Island, Santa Barbara Island, and Santa Cruz Island.
