Possum Trot Figure
Artwork images are copyright of the artist or assignee
Born in Tennessee, he married Ruby in 1933, and they lived most of their lives in Southern California, near Yermo, on land they purchased in 1953.  They opened a gift shop and finding themselves on a main road, created a miniature amusement part which they called "Possum Trot."  It had wind-driven constructions, and the heart of the exhibition was the "Bird Cage Theatre," with a fantasy doll show.

Calvin carved and painted about seventy dolls, 3 to 4 feet in height, from materi (showing 500 of 1582 characters).
