Object of the Day

Yellow Tulle Formal, 1934

Lorene Childers wore this gown in 1934 for a presentation ball when she was president of the Ko Shari social club on the Texas Tech campus. Twenty-two ladies descended an eighteen-foot stairway from the top of a simulated Mayan temple to encircle the ballroom for the Grand March led by Lorene and her escort.  At least 500 locals and college students witnessed this special event.

From the 1934 Texas Tech year book, Ms Childers can be seen front center
