Notes The donor said the items in this collection belonged to her mother's sister. When they passed away, the clothing was left to her mother. As a child the donor said she loved playing dress up and had a rich supply of clothing. Other family members gave the donor items over the years as they learned of her collecting interests. It is unclear who wore the clothing but a letter in the file indicates that the family lived in Kansas.
