Custodial history

Transferred to the Archives from the University Library, where they had been kept as part of the Guilford Costume Collection; prior custodial history unknown.

Scope and content

This fonds contains a binder of articles and photographs documenting costume design, and part of the material appears to have been catalogued as part of the College of Home Economics Guilford Costume Collection. There are also numerous, uncatalogued photographs (sepia and black and white), primarily of individuals and presumably collected to document costume and fashion. There are also a small number of photographs of Pense, Regina and Regina Beach, Sasktachewan.
