On this edition of Conversations from Studio B, host Doug McCabe talks with Schuyler Cone and Trina Gannon about the Mary C. Doxsee Historic Clothing & Textile Collection at the Patton College of Education at Ohio University.

McCabe, Cone and Gannon discuss the founding of the collection, some of the important pieces within the collection and how to best preserve historic fabrics and textiles.

“It’s really a great costume collection," said Cone. "We have all kinds of things: Men’s clothes, women’s clothes, children’s clothes… as Trina mentioned, textiles of historical significance. Clothing and textiles from all over the place…it really is a diverse and interesting collection."
