Marshall’s Mother’s Dress

In July of 1962 a trunk of clothing donated by the estate of George C. Marshall’s sister Marie Singer (1876-1962) was picked up in Uniontown, Pa. by Foundation librarian Eugenia Lejeune and brought back for accessioning. One of the items inside was this chartreuse, tan, and lavender dress belonging to George C. Marshall’s mother Laura Bradford Marshall (1846-1928). The dress is currently being exhibited for the first time in the Marshall Museum lobby in honor of Mother’s Day.
