Doll News Summer 2014 - (Page 92)

Camping Out at UFDC Headquarters A Past President, Mary Lu Trowbridge, organized and filed all the minutes from previous years meetings of the Executive Committee and Board. Billye Harris spent many hours carefully photographing the items in the collection that have been chosen to be displayed in the museum when it re-opens next July. 92 SUMMER 2014 group of dedicated UFDC members recently volunteered their time and effort to help work on the UFDC Museum Collection, Archives and Records. Nicknamed the Beaver Camp by Ann Coleman, this group certainly lived up to that name by working extremely hard during their time in Kansas City. Part of the impetus for all this hard labor is the 2015 convention being held in Kansas City. With all the recent significant gifts to the museum collection it was felt that it was time to really re-do and expand the museum exhibit space and prepare for a grand re-opening of the museum during the Kansas City UFDC National Convention. A total of nine members came out to Kansas City. Some stayed a few days and others stayed almost two weeks. Work days began at 8:30 a.m. and often lasted past 10:00 p.m. only stopping for lunch and oftentimes working through the dinner hour. Under the leadership of Collections Committee Chair, Ann Coleman, and ReAL Services Director, Janet Gula, much was accomplished thanks to the efforts of this dedicated group. Two more similar sessions are already being planned for the fall and next spring. UFDC salutes this group of exceptional volunteers and thanks them for their commitment to the organization! Bradley Justice brought his expertise on Barbie to assist in organizing the Carol Spencer donated collection of Barbie and Barbie related items, an important archival collection on the development of the doll and wardrobe during the period when Carol Spencer worked as a designer there.
