Featured Figure:
Shorty Jones

 

Date Created: 1908 

Created by: Theo Mack

Used by: Augustus Rapp

Trivia: 
1. Vent Augustus Rapp was born in 1871.
2. Shorty was created by Theo Mack, but his wood hands were carved by Rapp.
3. Shorty became a part of the Vent Haven collection in the fall of 1957.
4. An article about Shorty appears in the November/December 1957 edition of The Oracle
5. Shorty arrived at Vent Haven with a note: "He was a good boy for 50 years. If he ever talked back to me, it must have been my own fault. Give him a nice, warm place near the bathroom."
6. Shorty is currently on display in the Josephine Berger Memorial Building (Building Three). He can be seen on display in the Quicktime Virtual Pan Number Three. To find him, "turn around" to face the figures "behind" you. He is in the front row on the far right (A photo of August Rapp is in his lap).
7.  There is no bathroom in Building Three. However, Shorty has not asked to use the facilities in the almost 50 years he has been at Vent Haven.
