History Worn by Mamie Fischer, mother of the donor, Francis Patton Campbell, at Francis's graduation from Wellesly in 1924. I hesitate to agree with this dating, at the style of the dress is much more reminiscent of the 1930s, and would be extremely contemporary for 1924. Donor was 81 at time of donation to NSHS.
