Guest Speaker, Susan Popp, will present an exciting program "American Ragtime." Sue is a member and past president of the Doll Collectors of America (DCA), a club which promotes the study of Antique dolls. She has published articles in Antique Doll Magazine and the DCA Bulletin. Her doll, Abigail, a cloth doll made in Brown County, Indiana, was the subject of her research and article. Abigail was given a new home in a permanent exhibit at the Smithsonian in 2015 because of her amazing history.
Sue also belongs to the Doll Study Club of Boston, the United Federation of Doll Clubs. In addition, she is a certified UFDC for national and regional competitions.
Sue's program is sure to dazzle! She will touch on some of the early commercial makers of cloth and rag dolls, as well as a few examples of home made cloth dolls of the same period (late 1800s through pre-WW2). She will bring examples of home made cloth dolls of the same period (late 1800s through pre-WW2). No cloth doll program would be complete without mention of Miss Columbia and the Adams sisters.
