Who Are We?

The Middlebury College Antique Clothing Collection, in keeping with the college-wide mission to engage students in rigorous analysis and cross disciplinary thought, seeks to encourage a deeper understanding of the past through the study of clothing and textile history. Objects in the collection are available for examination by all students and serious researchers. Our goal is to collect, maintain, and share objects pertaining to all aspects of dress (with particular emphasis on items dating before 1940). Criteria for accepting objects into the collection include the consideration of appropriate quality, authenticity, condition, additional supportive documentation, and space availability.
