Two dolls were made and donated by Beverly Radefeld of
Topeka, Kansas. The dolls were inspired and copied from dolls
that are part of the Girard Foundation Collection located at the
Museum of International Folk Art in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
The doll above was copied from
the children's book,
"Almost to Freedom"
by Vaunda Micheaux Nelson.
The doll above is a copy of an
early 20th century doll from
the Eastern United States.
