Title: Edith Dabney Doll Collection

The Edith Dabney Doll Collection contains approximately 80 dolls manufactured across the world, from the early 18th century to the late 20th century. A former Associate Professor of Speech at Louisiana State University, Edith Dabney's personal collection of dolls comprised over 300 dolls, 80 of which the University's Special Collections inherited after her death. From the glittering shores of Martinique to the urban streets of London, Dabney collected dolls that imitated fashion wear from across the globe. The digital collection reflects this cultural diversity while also demonstrating the evolution of doll-construction and materials.
