Miss Toyama (Ambassador Doll)

Miss Toyama, one of the 58 Ambassador Dolls sent to America in 1927 as a thank-you gift for the Blue-eyed Dolls, is kept currently at the Speed Museum in Louisville, Kentucky.

From August 2000 to August 2001, Miss Toyama was displayed at the Wrather West Kentucky Museum of Murray State University in the city of Murray in the western part of Kentucky.

Below are photos taken when I visited Murray State University at the end of August 2001.
