Vintage gym clothes

A new exhibit titled “Vintage Gym Suits from the University Archives Collection” has been installed by the Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections & University Archives in the cases next to the Reference Desk of Jackson Library. The exhibition contains vintage photographs as well as a 1913 black serge gym suit, 1930s blue cotton gym suit and 1950s white cotton gym suit. The exhibition will be on display until Nov. 1, 2011.

The exhibition was requested by Dr. Donna Duffy (Kinesiology) for the Conference on Girls and Women In Sports and Physical Activity, which will be held Oct. 20-22 in EUC and the Alumni House. Details about the conference may be found here.
