Presented for your viewing pleasure are photos of the Humpty
Dumpty circus of Dr. Gene Metcalf, professor of American folk art at Miami
University in Ohio. Gene teaches about American folk art and toys, and the
phenomenon of collecting them. Gene once assembled a great collection of toy ray
guns. His collection can be seen at http://www.toyraygun.com
He wrote a book about toy ray guns called RAYGUN. Years ago, he sold his
collection to magician David Copperfield and now he collects the Schoenhut
Humpty Dumpty circus.
Encouraged by us, Gene has taken an interest in photographing
his collection for this Web site.
Enjoy his beautiful interpretation of his Humpty Dumpty
