Thanks From Ventriloquist Greg Claassen

Hi Dan,

I want to thank you for your great post about the Victorian Society visit. What struck me most was your last line of the post, “It is the best part of putting a collection together, being able to show it off.”

You are doing exactly what W.S. Berger did with his collection, sharing it with the world. Maybe some day I’ll make it to Malden, MA and have a guided tour of The Ventriloquist Central Collection.

A tip of the hat to you for all you do for our craft.

Greg Claassen



Greg, Thanks for your comment. To be compared to W.S. Berger, one of my idols, is a great compliment.

You are welcomed to see The Ventriloquist Central Collection anytime you’re in this area.

In fact, everyone reading this, if you’re ever in the Boston area, please call me so you can see The Ventriloquist Central Collection.
