Some of the skills espoused by a few of the Vaudeville ventriloquists, such as Fred Ketch's singing in harmony with himself, and the Great Lester's "hum" while drinking, seem to me like they might be a form of throat singing. Are old-time American ventriloquists known to have studied throat singing?

F.W.I.W., here's the Wikipedia page on the subject of throat singing: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Overtone_singing

Now, I don't think that throat singing is the only way to do the speak, hum, or sing while drinking routine, just that in the clip I've seen of the Great Lester it sounded like that was what he was doing.
