Relationship to Puppetry
Active Puppeteer and Builder for over 40 Years Retired now. Feeling a little tired
What First Got Me Interested in Puppetry
When I was a kid I was so bashful I couldn't talk. Puppets gave me a way to talk. I first saw puppets at one of the movies that had an extra attraction of Punch And Judy. My Mom thought this would bring me out of my shell. They tried it and I guess it worked because i havent shut up since.
My Puppetry (or Puppet) Hero
Howdy Dudy,
If I Were a Puppet, I'd Be...
Marrionette first because hand puppets are limited. Marrionettes are more capable. Howdy Dudy is the one I would be. Because that's the only one I can think of. (Noted directly from Fred).

Hi Joey,
I understood that you were the one setting this page up and assumed that you would be forwarding emails to him from the site. I've not seen Fred in about a year, but I talk with him often. I've also been in contact with his brother Max who keeps me up to date on his deteriorating health. Thanks for putting this tribute page together on Fred's work. He deserves it. I produced a documentary video back in 2003 on Fred's career which is now part of the PofA A/V Library. He's had a wonderful career and done beautiful work.
