Dress and Jacket
Donor: Miss Henrietta Thompson
The core collection of historic costume and textiles was established in the 1930s by Miss Henrietta Thompson for teaching purposes within the Department of Clothing,Textiles and Interior Design in the College of Human Environmental Sciences.
In the spring of 2018, a restructuring plan was implemented which included the development and implementation of professional curatorial procedures, practices, and management, and a collections management policy was established. The collection, intended for study, exhibition and research, is housed on the third floor of Mary Harmon Bryant Hall.
