Historical/Biographical Note

Originally purchased in 1883 by Miss C. L. W. French of Roxbury and Boston from Mlle Camille Lipman of Rue Drouot, Paris. "A tantalizing bit of evidence suggests that Miss French may have been a suffragette, for this dress was worn in 1920 by a relative at a celebration of the Nineteenth Amendment awarding women the vote." This photograph came with the dress along with a copy of the program from the 1920 celebration.
