Mother's Day Tea - with William Snyder, Curator, Eisenhower Presidential Museum

Saturday, May 11, 2019

Eisenhower Presidential Library and Museum Curator, William Snyder, knows everyone loves Mamie. He will present an entertaining program on well-known hat designer Sally Victor, clearly one of Mamie's favorite designers as we have a number of her hats in our collection. A special display showcasing some of our favorites will be exhibited for this occasion. The newspaper clipping shown here from 1954 announces "Mamie Chooses a Fall Hat Wardrobe" designed by Sally Victor. The three hats featured are described as "a small gray jersey flat pillbox embroidered in yarn, with a pair of tiny red felt wings on top; a soft, dusty pink velvet draped turban; and a simple breton of snowy white mink." Invite your moms, grandmas, daughters, and girlfriends to enjoy light refreshments, delicious teas and a fun program. Boys are welcome! Reservations are required by May 6. Purchase tickets for $20 each via the link at right or mail a check to the Eisenhower Foundation, PO Box 295, Abilene, KS 67410.
