|A World of Dolls: The Dabney Collection and Beyond|
Exhibition Dates: January 17- May 21, 1993
A World of Dolls showcased the collection of dolls donated to LSU by former professor of speech and costume design, Edith Dabney, along with other dolls in the University's collections and several on loan. The dolls dated from the eighteenth to the twentieth centuries, originated from around the world, and included antique European and American dolls as well as prehistoric, American folk-art and Native American dolls. The dolls were exhibited with related books from the LSU Library's Rare Book Collection at Hill Memorial Library and with textile and costume items from the Textile & Costume Museum's collections in the Museum's Gallery.
