Nineteenth Century American Ventriloquists
Ventriloquists are mentioned in the nineteenth century press much more often than puppeteers, and the discovery of the names of so many ventriloquists who, as far as I know, are not mentioned in any book leads me to believe that the history of American ventriloquism has not yet been written. This subject is peripheral to my area of research, but I would not want the information I have collected to go to waste, so I am making it available to anyone who may find it of interest, and if there are any such persons, it would be great to hear from them!
Pedro Duque Cornejo, Spanish Sculptor, 1678-1757
The Sevillian Pedro Duque Cornejo (1678-1757) was the most important sculptor of Andalusia in the eighteenth century. The purpose of this collection of reproductions of Duque Cornejo’s works is to supplement those included in my doctoral dissertation,
Pedro Duque Cornejo, 1678-1757
(University of Michigan, 1975). I amassed more photographs than I was able to use in the dissertation, and as I have no need for them now I would like to make them available to others.
