Provenance

This ensemble was worn by Sally Yerina while a student at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Sally was born October 11, 1933 in Columbus, Ohio to Mary and Sterling Scott. This ensemble was Sally's favorite outfit to wear when traveling from Oxford to Columbus. Sally later transferred to Ohio State university where she majored in Health Administration. Sally met her husband, Joseph Yerina, at OSU, and the two would wed in 1955.

This ensemble was manufactured by R&K Originals. R&K Originals was established in 1932 by Henry Kalman and David Rosenthal as the Rosenthal & Kalman Dress Corp, changing the name to R & K Originals in 1946. The principal designer at R&K Originals was Pauline Fracchia, who remained with the company until at least 1960.
