Popsy A Simple Made Ventriloquist Dummy From 1938

Ventriloquist Central now has an Ace Reporter! And our Ace Reporter found this great article about how to make a ventriloquist dummy.

This article appeared in the June 1938 issue of Popular Science (as a sidenote…my webmaster, Steve informed me it’s the same month and year that the very first Superman comic book came out….Steve collects Superman memorbilia).

Oh yeah…our new Ace Reporter is none other than Matt Kimbro. Thanks Matt for this wonderful article.
