GIVE TO THE MISSOURI HISTORIC COSTUME AND TEXTILE COLLECTION ENDOWMENT
The Missouri Historic Costume and Textile Collection Endowment was founded in 2002 by Dr. Laurel Wilson, former curator of the MHCTC for twenty-seven years, with funds from her William T. Kemper Fellowship Award for Teaching Excellence. Today, the MHCTC currently maintains endowed gifts totaling over $180,000 to help support annual maintenance of facilities, best-practice preservation efforts, and educational and exhibition programming. Partner in these efforts by contributing to the MHCTC Endowment.
The MHCTC accepts artifact donations of men’s, women’s and children’s apparel and accessories, world dress, and select household textiles, and actively collects artifacts with Missouri and University-related provenance, as well as those by notable regional designers, manufacturers and retailers of the past and present.
Due to limited space, objects are considered for acquisition based on current needs and gaps in the collection. Initial consultations are made using digital images and artifact provenance sent to the Collection Manager: firstname.lastname@example.org; local scheduled appointments may also available. In order to ensure the safety of donated items, the MHCTC is unable to accept artifacts without prior consultation. Please contact an MHCTC representative before mailing or dropping off any objects.
