This bib and other items were purchased from New York Exchange for Woman's Work during the last week of its operation in February, 2003. The Exchange was founded in 1878 by Candace Wheeler and Mary Atwater Choate to provide respectable women who needed to earn living, particularly Civil War widows, a viable means for supporting themselves. The exchange was forced to close in 2003 due to high overhead and a waning market for handmade goods.
Due to ongoing research, information about this object is subject to change.
