I first saw Beth Ann Derkson perform live using her Maher ventriloquist figure, Rusty, at the Abbot's 1970 Get-Together. An excellent ventriloquist - the audience loved them. One would assume they would have a long career ahead, but she seemed to fade from the public eye soon thereafter. That has always puzzled me. Anyone know the answer?

    I've found some more recent google mentions of Beth Ann Derksen, with an e rather than an o.
