If you go to the Ventriloquist Central Collection and look at the Ray Guyll figure there is a nice story about his creating this figure and delivering it at the ConVENTion.

I am now happy to share this great picture, which Ray sent me, of him giving that first lecture. Along with the two figures Ray built, there is another very famous figure on the stage as well.

Boy it must have been great back in those days when some of the Vent Haven museum made its way over to the ConVENTion as well.

Anyway thanks Ray for sharing this great picture with Verntriloquist Central and all our readers.

    I remember that first lecture! I met Ray for the first time at that 1975 conVENTion. I even bought his lecture notes and still have them and went home and actually tried his method of making a plastic wood head… sculpted the clay on my desk in the dorm at college. LOL! Thanks for bringing back some wonderful memories!
