New Facebook page for Ida McKinley dress project!

I just set up a new Facebook page dedicated to our First Lady Ida McKinley Dress Restoration Project!  Click here to check it out!

We will be featuring updates on the project, profiling the dresses in our collection, and pointing out our conservation concerns as we move forward.  It will also be a one-stop shop for all of the publicity associated with this project.  So far, we've been fortunate enough to receive media attention from the Repository (Gary Brown's story was on the AP wire, so it spread across Ohio and beyond!), WVIZ, and writer/librarian Betsy Butler's blog (she is working on an article for PieceWork magazine about the project).

If you are interested in making a donation to this project, you can send a check (made out to the McKinley Presidential Library & Museum) to:

Ida McKinley Dress Restoration Project

Every bit helps!
