Sewing sample pages from the Home Economics 3 class notebook kept by Olive True Smith, UNH Class of 1921. At the time of her attendance, the University of New Hampshire was called New Hampshire College of Agriculture and the Mechanic Arts. Irma Bowen came to New Hampshire College in 1920 to teach textile classes, focusing both on techniques and the history of clothing. She began gathering garments for students to examine in class for enlightenment and inspiration, the beginnings of what is known today as the Irma G. Bowen Historic Clothing Collection.
