Mrs. J.A. Stover of Hoagland Avenue is seen in this photo with most of her collection of 20 dolls dressed in 18th and 19th century clothing.
According to a Dec. 17, 1950, story in The Journal Gazette by Tom R. Gilliam, Stover traveled across North America to research information for her doll clothing.
Among dolls she had were those wearing costumes of 1775, 1830, 1860 and 1868.
