What Annie Wore

Currently on display in the Main Floor lobby of Leyburn Library is an exhibit entitled “What Annie Wore: Fashion at the Turn of the 20th Century.”
Anne (“Miss Annie Jo”) Robertson White, Washington and Lee University librarian from 1895 through 1922, distinguished herself as originator of W&L’s Fancy Dress. In this role, she serves as inspiration for the library’s turn-of-the-century women’s fashion exhibit.
Come see books and memorabilia that represent the indulgences and excitement of dressing up in the late Victorian/early Edwardian period in the West.
The exhibit will be available through May.
After that, we probably will have no further Main Floor exhibits until 2009 because of renovation work in the library.
