girls and textiles

4

The Camp Fire Girls, the United States’ first nonsectarian organization for girls, began in 1910. Camp Fire Girls in Iowa learned and played at Camp Hitaga from 1931 - 2014. 

Kery Lawson, recent graduate of the University of Iowa’s School of Library and Information Science, spent her summer processing the Camp Fire Iowana - Camp Hitaga records, which include over a dozen textile artifacts. Kery laid the beaded uniforms pictured above flat in tissue for their protection.
