Dressing for Education: JMU in the Founding Years 1908-1928

Posted on: March 12, 2007

A Centennial exhibition, “Dressing for Education: JMU in the Founding Years 1909-1929,” runs until May 2008 in the historic lobby in the 1939 wing of Carrier Library. The display features photographs, yearbooks and ephemera from the library’s Special Collections’ JMU Historical Collection and period clothing from the School of Theatre and Dance’s Historic Clothing Collection. The exhibition is based on a research project, “Dressing for Education the First Fifty Years: Highlights of the JMU Historic Clothing Collection 1908-1959,” by JMU theater Professor Pamela Schuelke Johnson and Sabrina Claire Chapman, a member of the JMU Class of 2005.
